DMV’s own Lexi is a semi-finalist in the Sally Beauty Cultivate Competition. At age 13, this young entrepreneur is making major moves in the beauty industry!
Child author Lexi P. is a creative and adventurous tweenpreneur with a big imagination and even bigger hair. She is an honor-roll student who loves to serve her community and is an active Girl Scout member who eagerly mentors younger girls in her troop.
Lexi has a passion for writing and saw the need to share her personal lessons about learning to love herself. In her debut book, Curly Girls Love Your Curls, Lexi did just that. The book received such a positive response from young girls across the globe that it inspired Lexi to create the hair care line “Curlanista” designed to help girls’ curls pop non-stop! She shared a positive message about how loving your natural hair reinforces the importance of self-esteem.
Her second book, The Ice Cream Talk: Loving The Skin You’re In, expands the topic of self-love even more. This bright young author is a strong believer in following your dreams and believing in yourself. Through what she is envisioning as a series of children’s books, Lexi P. plans on sharing with the world her many adventures and life-lessons.
In 2017, she was selected by Verizon to be featured in their #Weneedmore initiative which exposes youth to careers in STEM and entrepreneurship. In Lexi’s public service announcement with Verizon, she shared her story on being a kidpreneur. Lexi uses her platform to inspire other kids to follow their dreams. Since then Lexi has been invited to speak at schools and other forums inspiring other kids to pursue their goals.
