June, 2021 - CEO of MyFirstSale.com
What an honor it was to be the first teen CEO of MyFirstSale.com, a company that empowers kid entrepreneurs to start their own businesses while teaching financial literacy and real world skills. As a kid entrepreneur myself, I gracefully accepted the position and couldn’t wait to get to work. As the CEO, I supported with the following:
- Researched and gathered sponsorship opportunities
- Created a marketing plan to improve PR and social media efforts
- Led team Zoom meetings about mentorship opportunities for kid entreprenuers
- Provided feedback in regards to the sales and marketing copy on MyFirstSale.com
2020 - Contributing Author of the
International Best Selling Book "Ignite Happiness"
In 2020, I came together with a group of writers to publish a book about Happiness. I was able to contribute my very own chapter about my experiences with body image growing up, as well as being able to provide advice and strategies to overcome negative ways of thinking.
My story was designed to raise awareness about the connection between happiness and body image and is filled with many of my heartfelt experiences. After speaking with dozens of young adults, I have realized that having an open discussion about body image is both needed and welcomed. I wrote this chapter to help teens and adults just like me be aware of how having the right mindset can empower you to love your body.
2017 - TEDx Talk:
Don't Ask Me WHAT, Ask Me WHO
Here I am as an 8th grader, arguing for a new approach to the age-old question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” I was an 8th grader at Ecole Bilingue de Berkeley. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
2015 - TEDx Talk:
You ARE The Future, What's YOUR Story?
Here I am as a 6th grader sharing a story of my beloved pets, my inspiration for writing four books about my pets and how ALL four Kindle books hit #1 on Amazon the first week of publication. It was an honor to inspire fellow peers and anyone watching that they too can write and become published authors.
2014 - Winner of "Best Local Book"
from Oakland Magazine
What an honor it was to be named “Best Local Author” by Oakland Magazine. After the release of my book, Lucky Leo, which hit #1 on Amazon the very first week of its release, CBS also reached out to me to do an exclusive TV interview. I was so happy that my first book was so well received by the San Francisco Bay Area and my community.
2012 - 2013 Published Four Books & Became #1 Amazon Best Seller
In 2013, I published my very first book, Lucky Leo, which hit #1 on Amazon in less than a week, landing me the title of a #1 Amazon Best-Seller. I was so inspired by the impact I’ve made on pet owners of all ages, that I went on to publish two other books that same year and the 4th one in 2013. Yes, ALL of my books hit #1 on Amazon the same week they were published.
