Hi! My name is Nicholas, and I am 7 and in First Grade.
When the Coronavirus started, my mom told me to get creative and start a business. I was 6 years old at the time and doing virtual Kindergarten. I love art, so when my mom put a bunch of crafts on our dining table, I happily got to work.
I ended up making a really cool craft plane, and my baby brother took it away from me (he wanted it!). So, then a lightbulb went off in my head; I thought: Hey, my business should be selling craft plane kits for kids!
I chose planes because I missed traveling during the pandemic, and traveling is my favorite thing to do with my family. I wanted to make something for kids like me to use their imagination... putting together my special planes and pretend they're going anywhere in the world.
I sell a bunch of different DIY Kits. They're colorful, cool, and you can even buy special decorating kits, birthday kits, and accessories.
A portion of every sale goes to the Triple Heart Foundation. My mom's friend runs this beautiful organization that gives books to NICUs all around the country. I care about the NICU because it helps babies get born and keep them healthy. I was in the NICU, too! I was born early and am so thankful to the NICU because they helped me a lot. I also have a Kits for Kids program gifting free kits to kids whose parents are essential medical workers.
It makes me feel happy to own my own business. Thank you so much for supporting me!
