We’re happy to report that Diana Sierra, one of our PA entrepreneurs, is also helping young women around the world with her new project: Be Girl. Formally trained as an industrial designer, Diana has worked with clients such as Nike, Playtex, Tommy Hillfiger, Energizer and Panasonic, but her passion is in sustainable development. Read what Diana has to say on the Huffington Post, and her heartwarming letter about her experience on Plum Alley.
Talented in a range of disciplines, Diana also creates symbolic sculptures that play with light and form to be used as candleholders for your home. See her products and read more about her at Plum Alley Shop.
Another one of our PA entrepreneurs, Jessica Banks, founder of RockPaperRobot, was featured in Bloomberg TV as she talked about her challenges of scaling up production. Watch the full video here.
