Sophie Bhamj is finishing her A-levels but already has her student business, Precious Jewellery, up and running. Business is a hobby, she says, but it's proved to be a tidy little earner.
In this video she talks about balancing her student business with her studies, how she found suppliers, whether her age has been an issue and how she's overcome that, and what it's like to be a young entrepreneur. She also gives advice on managing finances and using her Education Maintenance Allowance to fund her start-up - and how her business could well pay for her time at university.
