Ashley is an 11 year old girl with big goals. She is a competitive dancer and a cheerleader, who is also a Type 1 diabetic.
She started making bubblegum beaded pens and keychains with her friends for fun, which quickly became popular. She then decided to start her own company appropriately named Boss Beads.
Ashley wanted to give back to her community, so she then decided to donate all the proceeds from her pens to Cincinnati Children's Hospital. She has also sent new toys to the Child Life department. CCHMC helped her so much when she was hospitalized and she loves being able to give back to this great organization.
Ashley states, "I love making keychains and pens with my friends and family. It has been a lot of fun, along with learning how to run a business."
