Hello I am Aleena Valdez. I am now a 13 year old entrepreneur, and philanthropist. During 2015 I raised and donated over $1,500 to Phoenix Children’s Hospital to benefit kids with cancer. I also made and delivered 24 gift bags to kids in the hospital during the holidays. These accomplishments were achieved through funds raised by my LemonAid stand and by partnering with my school to create a fundraiser.
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.
