All of 11 years, Mikalia Ulmer is the next in the league of kid entrepreneurs who have attracted the attention of the who’s who in the world of business. For Mikalia, it all started with an intention to become a social entrepreneur. Championing for a noble cause to protect honeybees, she referred to her great granny’s cookbook and researched on bees to uncover their importance to our ecosystem.
All in an attempt to prevent bees from facing extinction, Mikalia churned out her “Me & the Bees Lemonade”; a concoction of flaxseeds and mint sweetened with honey collected from local honeycombs. From the money she gets from every bottle of lemonade, Mikalia donates a certain percentage to organizations that are working to preserve bees.
