Meet the CEO of Positively Lena
My name is Lena Ford. I am eleven years old and the C.E.O of Positively Lena. I started Positively Lena when I was nine years old.
One day, while talking to my mom about my school day, I told her a story about a friend that was having a sad day. I told my mom how I talked to my friend and reminded her of all the positive things that were going on in her life. My friend felt so much better and thanked me for being her positive friend. I told my mom that I wished that there was a way I could be everyone’s positive friend.
After more conversations with my mom, I decided I had to make a change in the world. There is so much negativity involved in our daily lives. My family has taught me to always have faith, keep a positive attitude and to love my self. These are messages that I want to share with the world. I decided to combine some of the things I love the most; art, fashion and words to create fashionable key chains for everyone to enjoy.
At the age of 7, I started ARTing for You. The purpose behind ARTing for You is to collect art supplies and donate them to shelters, foster homes and transitional homes that help children. A percentage of sales from Positively Lena go to fund the purchase of art supplies.
When you purchase a key chain from Positively Lena, I want you to feel good knowing that you have a fashionable, one of a kind key chain, and that you are helping a child have access to art supplies.
