    MEET THE ZANDRA BEAUTY OF THE MONTH – AUGUST 2015

    Olivia was nominated by her mother Anita Durand Allen to be our Zandra Beauty of the Month.

    “I am thrilled to nominate my daughter Olivia for the Zandra beauty of the month. Olivia is a 10 year old actress/dancer/singer who loves to help people in need. Over the past two months she has organized and conducted two successful local donations drives. In March she collected over 100 toys for Kosair Charities, an organization that aids and assists children with disabilities and illnesses and their families. In April she conducted a food drive for Dare to Care Food Bank’s Backpack Buddy Program. Children who live in food insecure homes and depend on free and reduced lunches during the week are given a backpack of food they can easily access and eat on the weekend’s when they may otherwise not get enough food. She, her sister and her best friend from school collected more than 8 boxes of of food. For this effort she was featured on WHAS 11 News with the Jefferson County Public Schools Superintendent and got to meet the Mayor of Louisville, Greg Fischer. She was also featured on WDRB Fox 41 the day of the drive and WLOU Radio Simmons Saturday Morning Solutions Show.

    As a professional actress and dancer Olivia has been features in commercials, local billboards and magazines, and on stage in theatrical and dance productions. She loves to read, draw, and write stories, she enjoys all things girly and is a true fashionista. IN addition to all that, Olivia is a model student and has received only one B among the A’s on her report card.  

     

    We had a chance to ask Olivia a few questions, check out her answers below:

    ZA:  Tell us about who you are and what your passionate about ( hobbies, sports, fun stuff you like to do).

    OA:  I am an openminded, fashionable, 10 year old who loves to dance, act and write songs. It is important to me that the people I care about are happy and I make hand made birthday cards for all my friends.  I come up with ideas to help people and find a way to make them a reality.

    ZA: How important do you think Girls education is and why?

    16-YEAR-OLD’S BEAUTY BUSINESS IS BOOMING

    Business is Booming! And this month, Zandra was ecstatic to share that news on the Harry Connick Jr show. With 36 beauty products in our range, five wonderful scents and a message of empowerment, fun, and dedication, we think she did a pretty good job too!

    Teenpreneur on TV…

    Zandra is a beacon of girl empowerment, inspiration and giving back to the local community. Harry certainly seemed impressed with Zandra’s ‘incredible drive and intelligence’ which she puts down to:

    • Research
    • Hard work
    • Dedication
    • … and being involved in the community

    And as we all know, Zandra has a hard and fast rule for teenpreneurs – ‘Do your research and don’t give up!’ We know it, and the proof of her success is evident in an amazing line of products!

    GIRL SCOUTS OF WNY-2014 ‘I CAN BE’ CAREER DAY

    Last weekend (11/8/14), the Girl Scouts of Western New York hosted an event for girls in Western New York. The event was called ‘I Can Be’ Career Day and it was awesome. I saw so many amazing women come together to speak and present their life and work experience with the girls that were lucky enough to attend.  Girls in grades 6-12 were allowed to:

    “Meet and learn from professional women with careers in a variety of fields, perform hands-on activities that directly relate to the profession of choice, experience an event that supports girls to select any career path of their choosing.”

    After a crazy week of moving in the Queen City Pop Up and setting up my new production studio, I was just happy to be in the building. I had NO idea I was actually opening the event behind Ms. Cindy Odom, CEO of Girl Scouts of Western New York and Ms. Morgan Williams-Bryant, Senior VP of Membership and Program! Wow, right? I know!  I guess my mom just “forgot” to mention that. lol

    Oh well, I was nervous but went ahead with my plan. I spoke to a huge room full of girls about my business, skill set, and what qualities were needed if they decided they wanted to start and run their own business. After all, Ms. Morgan pointed out that many of them were already in business, as they had been selling Girl Scout cookies for years. It was important for all the girls in the room to know that they too could do what I am doing. Every girl could live her dream and walk in her purpose if she followed these few rules:

    1) Have a solid plan

    2) Seek advise + education, there are tons of free services out there)

    3) Connect with like-minded people

    4) Lastly, Keep fighting to work your plan, even on the worst days!

    I ended with a question: What will your verse be? What will you do that the world or someone will remember you by?

     

    Ms. Odom, CEO of Girl Scouts of WNY- She was so supportive and cool.

    I first met Me. Morgan this past October at my Day of the Girl event. She was awesome enough to support my event.

    Until next time.
