There are some really incredible kids out there who are role models and inspirations to children all over the world. They are hardly ever talked about sadly because we are so focused on celebrities and all of the things that they are doing in their daily lives. Here are five amazing children who you should teach your kids about to show them that you really can do amazing things if you put your mind to it.
1. Moziah “Mo” Bridges (11): At the tender age of four, Moziah insisted on wearing a suit and bow tie. It didn’t matter where he was going, he always wanted to look nice. The bow tie became a signature look of his. He decided to take that passion and turn it into a business with the help of his mother and grandmother. And so began Mo’s Bows. He doesn’t want to just stop at bow ties however and is hoping to attend Parson’s School of Design in New York City to begin to develop his own clothing line.
2. Amaya Selmon (12) and Jaden Wheeler (11): This brother and sister duo started with an idea from their mother to start a lemonade stand to buy the toys that they wanted. They thought that was a little too common so Jaden came up with the idea for Sno Cones because he loved the ones from Jerry’s in Memphis. They are now the youngest owners of a food truck in Memphis and it is called Kool Kidz sno Konez.
3. Leanna Archer (17): At just 8 years old Leanna took a passion for hair care and created Hair Inc. She started out selling her family-made hair care products that help to repair damaged hair to her classmates and friends. Things took off from there! She has a website, is the CEO of her company, and has been offered a scholarship to Harvard University. Her enterprise brings in over $100,000 in revenue per year.
4. Chental-Song Bembry (14): Chental-Song created the company Honeybunch Kids. She is motivated to provide books to kids between the ages of 7 and 12 that will keep them entertained but also teach them. She also wants to launch a literacy campaign to get more kids to learn to love reading. She sold 500 books last year and is hoping to double that this year.
5. Umar Brimah: (12): Umar is the owner of his own anime store called Yumazu Anime Shop. His mother made a $10,000 investment for him to open the store. It is hard to find anime stuff in stores so he is hoping to open a chain of stores that will allow people to find a cheaper alternative to buying anime collections as opposed to paying huge prices online.
