Home alone: Working a ‘freelance summer’ from home (while wearing sweatpants)

Pava LaPere
Pava LaPere, 2019

Choosing to be my own boss meant forgoing fancy internships, an experience in a new city, and probably much larger summer earnings. But it also meant that I got giant blocks of uninterrupted time to work on my ventures, which is much more valuable currency for an entrepreneur.

Pava LaPere is a member of the Johns Hopkins Class of 2019. She is a computer science major and entrepreneurship and management minor. LaPere serves as the president of the executive committee for TCO Labs, a non-profit organization focused on fostering the entrepreneurial community on the Johns Hopkins University Homewood campus. She has also been spending this summer completing freelance work from home for startups.
