Hello I am Aleena Valdez. I am now a 16 year old entrepreneur, and philanthropist. I have raised and donated over $3,000 to Phoenix Children’s Hospital to benefit kids with cancer through my lemonaid stand Aleena’s LemonAid. I spell lemonaid with an AID because I am using my business to try to make a difference one sip at a time.
I am a strong believer that you are never too young to change the world. I was fortunate enough to attend a major conference in Boston. At the conference I heard some amazing speeches that ignited a fire in me to help in different ways. This was where the concept for this conference was first born. I want to bring powerful speakers and individuals together to speak to young girls like myself with the hopes that they are impacted as much as I was.
