A 21-year-old from Windsor who names Taylor Swift as her business inspiration will be the youngest candidate in this year’s series of The Apprentice.
Elle Stevenson describes herself as a ‘geezer bird’ and says she is effervescent, passionate and 'maybe a little insane’.
Earlier this year, she volunteered with the Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service where she helped to organise an event at Windsor Racecourse.
Though she’s the youngest candidate of the group, she says those who know her would say she is older than her years.
She was operations director of a construction company at just 20-years-old, which she said is her best business achievement to date.
Elle has taught herself fluent Latin and says Taylor Swift is ‘the best businesswoman of the 21st century’ and her business inspiration.
She said: “I hate anything mediocre, I can’t be middle.
“I hate being the person that comes second. I’ve never been the person that comes second.
“I’d rather be the one who fell over at the start of the race and never make it to the finish line.”
The 11th series of The Apprentice starts on Wednesday at 9pm on BBC One.
