Let’s be honest, it was inevitable! Eventually, us old folks (all the 21, 22 and 26 year olds) would be replaced by younger, smarter, better-looking versions of ourselves (Rachelle and Carrie not included). Completely usurped by newer models with fresh faces and bright ideas! Byye’s very own model of planned obsolescence! You, our reader, have probably grown tired of our pandering and weekly tirade of blog posts (maybe just mine?).
Over the past few weeks since the launch of our blog, you’ve probably been hoping, waiting for something or someone to breathe fresh, new air into the lungs of the Whipper Snappers Blog and save it from such mundane, stale reads as, “The power of social media” and “Fave Craft Breweries So Far.” Who cares that you swindled a free brewery tour by being a whiny baby (I had other choice words for myself) on social media? In my head, the answer is an unequivocal and obvious yes. But the truth is, probably absolutely nobody. But I digress with my self-deprecating humor…
Well, ladies and gentlemen, your prayers have been answered! Introducing the new whipper snappers 2.0, Andrew Pullar and Sheena Agnew!
They’re young, they’re bright, they’re still in high school… Oh boy, do I feel old. It’s our hope that both Andrew and Sheena can become weekly contributors to our Whipper Snappers Blog and provide us with some perspective on what it’s like to be a high school student working in a start-up environment!
I had the pleasure of interviewing both Andrew and Sheena and getting to know them a little bit better. Let’s meet them, shall we?
