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.

You can listen and subscribe to the Big Vision Podcast via iTunes, its landing page, or on the player above.  If you have suggestions for people I should interview, please email me at britt AT brittbravo DOT com.

      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.
