I am very proud of these intelligent, awesome young entrepreneurs. They are the future and they are shining bright. Another entrepreneur i would like to add to this list is a young lady by the name of Aaliyah Walker. At the age of 14 years old she started designing her own clothing. Her talent came from her saying that she just has visions of a style of clothing and then she finds what she needs to make it. She also has a shoe fashion line. She has served many customers. Today she is 20. I wanted to recognize her because she is a college student at UCA as well. Not a lot of people are recognized considering the area they live in. They go unnoticed . But today, I will say hats off to an intelligent, young business entrepreneur from Pine Bluff,Ar. She may not be there on the list but that does not mean she doesn’t shine. Please look for her in the future for her clothing store and clothing line because God will propel this young black, intelligent, creative young woman into her destiny, and if God be for her, who can be against her. Again hats off to all these beautiful/ handsome young black entrepreneurs. May god continue to give you the vision’s for success.
