FAB Girl Making History: Maya Penn

Photo from Maya's shop on Etsy.

Meet Maya Penn.

You may think this photo of the eleven year old is from a dance recital, and you would be wrong. It’s from the pint sized designer’s shop on Etsy!

Maya Penn is the CEO of Maya’s Ideas, a line of handmade, environmentally conscious clothes and accessories. She recycles different fabrics and re imagines them into beautiful hats, scarves, bags, and other items.

In addition to being a businesswoman, she is a philanthropist, donating 10% of her proceeds to Atlanta area charities. She has been profiled by Forbes magazine’s list of grade school entreprenuers and interviewed by Fox Atlanta.

We see a bright future ahead of this FAB Girl!
