Next Generation Big Visionary: 18-Year-Old Aneesha Raghunathan, Hope Line Fashions

"You have to actually spend two hours every day on it, and it was really hard junior year 'cause I had SATs, and all that kind of stuff.  It was really hard, but I think what kept motivating me was that I knew it would pay off eventually.  It would grow and people would care about the cause." 
- Aneesha Raghunathan

Last fall I got a message through Facebook from Aneesha Raghunathan, the 18-year-old founder of Hope Line Fashions.  I was so impressed with her work as a young social entrepreneur that I wanted to share it with you on this month's Big Vison Podcast.  Hope Line's mission is to empower women around the world through the sale of unique T-shirts that are made by the women.

      This girl is such an inspiration. I love it when high schoolers recognize that they can make a difference. All it takes is a little motivation, and some anger about the state of the world. Look what this girl did just by networking and pushing through the roadbumps. Wow.
