Maria Fernanda said: "My project is named Tree Concept. This is a company that manufactures and distributes cosmetic products made from natural ingredients.
The idea was born in a class called International Trade 2, in which we were asked to make products for export. I made a prototype of a sunblock based on essential oils. UCC held a fair and I was invited to participate by Professor Javier Cardoza. The fair was held on Sunday, November 12, I participated in the category of Business Ideas and won first place."
