As an avid DIY-er, designer, and ideator, I have complimented my favorite pastime of 'making' by selling originally designed and made room decor, graphic clothing, computer decals, and mindfulness canvas kits.
I started this business in 6th grade to sell my handmade items to the local and international community. This was my first introduction to entrepreneurship, as I hacked at a personal website builder to make it work for my online business.
As the years past, my passion and interest in, both, making and entrepreneurship, increased. I experimented with selling on my personal website, on Etsy, and played with social media as a tool for marketing and building a creative community around my business. I learned so much through this experience and the start of this small business at age 12 is what sparked my passion for entrepreneurship that I embody today.
