Background:

StartUpBySophia is about getting more girls and youth into STEM. Specifically by Role-Modelling to them and letting them know what they can do today by 1. Leading by Example, 2. Investing in the future 3. Creating Leaders through STEM. To do this I have created and set up a product to represent each major science (Physics, Biology, and Chemistry)  and the remaining letters in STEM (Technology, Engineering, and Math).

Current site DecalsBySophia.com

The story behind the story:

Being told that she was too young to go to work, that science is not for girls, having few peers to work with, and being too young to get money for financing. All she had to overcome these barriers was encouragement, love from family, $200 a cookies recipe and coffee. With these resources she made $4000 and from that, she created FunCro. With her success she would like to pay it forward by being a role model and has created 1 product for each part of STEM.
