Imagine that, by the time you're in 7th grade,:
- You've come up with an idea for a candy that's GOOD for your teeth (Whaaat?!)
- Actually created that candy (and it's GOOD!)
- Started a business (and have your parents working for YOU)
- Brought that product to market, including being the youngest vendor for the world's top retailers, with sales of more than $2 million a year.
- Appeared on the floor of the N.Y. Stock Exchange
- Appeared at the White House Easter Egg roll
Meet Alina Morse....she's done ALL of that....and she's just 12-years-old!
Alina created Zolli Pops, Zolli Drops and Zaffi Taffy. All of her candy is sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, kosher and made with all natural flavors right here in the U.S.
The candy contains xylitol and erythritol, both of which are healthy sugar alternatives. That means, it's good for your teeth because it helps to raise pH in your mouth, and that neutralizes acids and reduces the risk of tooth decay, which, according to the U.S. Surgeon General, is the single most chronic condition facing kids in the U.S. today.
Not only is she a savvy businesswoman, she's also a philanthropist!
Alina donates 10% of profits to fund an increase in oral health education in schools. She also provides her Zolli Pops to dentists and works with the Special Olympics.
And, last month, Alina made a big announcement on CNN from the floor of the N.Y. Stock Exchange that she's giving away 1 million of her products in 2018 to help support oral health education in schools.
