Maya Penn is 11 years old, in the 7th grade, and is like most kids her age in many ways. However, there is one very big difference between her and most of her pre-teen peers, she is the CEO and owner of her own company, Maya’s Ideas.

The young business woman designs and hand makes clothes and accessories that are eco-friendly and fashionable. She was also recently featured on forbes.com for her apparel, but she’s not stopping there. She’s also a frequent blogger and is dabbling in animation.

Check out a recent interview of the young entrepreneur on MyFox Atlanta.
