SABRINA ROESLER
Founder of Fresh’n Juicy

Sabrina’s journey as an entrepreneur started even without her noticing. This girl wanted to play store and by doing that she was entering in a world with many unknown words that she mastered when she was little: money, credit cards, food stand, cashier, and many others.

 

She first won third place on the ‘Pitch your Business’ event hosted by Lemonade Day Houston in 2019. The first kid to do this in the city when she was merely 8-years old, and she succeeded!

⭐️

Fresh’n Juicy was created as a variation of a traditional Lemonade Stand. The team envisioned a stand that can sell healthy drinks all year long!

GABI ANGELINI
Founder of Gabi’s Grounds

When Gabi graduated high school she searched and applied for many positions but could not get hired, not surprisingly 82% of individuals with special needs are unemployed.

 

Gabi launched Gabi’s in 2017 to give her and others in the special abilities community the opportunity to be productive, responsible employees. They are not just telling people they should hire people with disabilities; we are doing it!

⭐️

Gabi was honored with the 2019 Self-Advocate of the Year Award by North Carolina Down Syndrome Association.

AVA DORSEY
Founder of Ava’s Pet Palace

Ava Dorsey is the 15-year-old founder and Chief Pet Officer of Ava’s Pet Palace. Together with her family, they’ve been building a pet wellness business since 2016. 

 

Ava has always loved animals and believed our pets are family. She creates organic and natural treats for dogs and cats to help them live healthier and happier lives.

 

⭐️

Ava’s purpose is to inspire all people to change the world using their own gifts and talents. A better world for pets, people and the planet starts with all of us.

CAITLIN CROSBY

Founder of Giving Keys and author of You Are The Key

Actress, singer, songwriter and entrepreneur Caitlin Crosby knows a thing or two about inspiring others. She began writing songs with Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds in high school and subsequently signed to his label, Arista Records. While on tour, Caitlin started The Giving Keys which employs those transitioning out of homelessness to make jewelry out of repurposed keys.

⭐️

Over the last three years, The Giving Keys has employed 28 people who have struggled with homelessness, helped 22 move into permanent housing, and collected thousands of pay it forward stories. Today, they have over 50 employees and their products are sold at Nordstrom, Anthropologie, Fred Segal, Kitson and nearly 2,000 other retail stores around the world.

NADIA FISHER

Artist and Illustrator of Create Your Bright Ideas

Based in Washington, DC, Nadia Fisher is a self-taught artist and illustrator striving to normalize inclusion in children’s books and the illustration world.

⭐️

She wants children from all backgrounds to be able to see themselves in the books they read, and she works to instill a sense of confidence and joy in them as well. When she is not drawing or painting, you can either find Nadia spending time with her husband and daughter (probably biking or roller skating) or binge-watching shows, documentaries, and movies on Netflix. She also loves to get away from the busyness of the city by visiting nearby state parks with her family.

"Our world is great at telling kids to follow the rules - but not so great at teaching them to break the ones that stand in the way of building a fulfilling, vibrant purpose-filled life. Jess’s book is teaching kids how to stop being afraid of others’ opinions, and how to fiercely go after their dreams."

Jessica Honegger
Founder of Noonday Collection, Author of Imperfect Courage
"This is the book I wish I had when I was a tween! I was brimming with so many creative ideas but felt scared to talk about them because I didn't want to stand out. If that's you, the power-packed pages within this book will encourage you to be bold and write all those dreamy ideas down. You have those awesome ideas for a reason. If you want to change the world one day, this book will not only help you, it will empower you to start today... to start right now!"
