This 17-Year-Old Entrepreneur Created A Subscription Box To Empower Youth Of Color

Journi Prewitt was featured within Forbes Magazine for creating an amazing business. Forbes mentions that "When 17-year-old Journi Prewitt noticed her cousin wasn't interested in reading, she was determined to inspire her. And as the avid reader and aspiring entrepreneur realized more young children held that same lack of interest, she came up with a way to empower young girls and boys of color to embrace their heritage and learn to love reading, too.

Confronting negative stereotypes and underrepresentation of black men and women in the media, Prewitt created Black Butterfly Beautiful, a monthly subscription box for young girls of color to celebrate their beauty and heritage through books and products from black-owned businesses.

"I want each box to show young girls they are beautiful and should celebrate who they are," Prewitt says."
