Name: Myra Saxena
Business name: Sparklez
What was the 1st step you took to start your kidpreneur journey?
My first step to take my journey was to acknowledge that I love being kind and I love supporting my community. And I started off with a few fundraisers, and my family and friends were very supportive and very surprised.
What challenges did you face?
The first challenge I faced was that I had a really strong vision. It was just I didn't know the first step. The second challenge I faced was, I'm trying to build a team, but there are not a lot of kids my age that can support and know about my vision.
How do you celebrate your wins?
I love celebrating with my family and friends. But while I'm celebrating, I still think of the opportunities that I have and how I can give them to other kids in need.
What feedback have you received?
The first couple feedbacks I've heard are very supportive and very positive. And then the next couple feedbacks, they're asking me how I can expand this platform for kids, by kids. And I love hearing feedback, because obviously you can get a lot of information and you grow with it.”
What's your proudest moment?
My proudest moment was when I accomplished one of my goals, which was to support Braille papers for blind girls.
What's the most important thing you've learned?
The most important thing I learned throughout my journey was even when things push you down, got to believe in yourself and got to keep on going.
My next goal is to build a huge team and then put a small library in an underprivileged school.
What would you say to inspire other Kidpreneurs?
I would say that we can all make this world a better place if we all work together. So just go at it. Even if you don't believe in yourself yet.
Is there anything else you’d like to add?
My feedback was they missed one question. Which was, "What is your business?" My business is to make this world a better place. But I sell jewelry and I get money. And with the money, I give it to kids in need.
