Zoe Terry is the 11-year-old CEO and founder of Zoe’s Dolls, a non-profit organization she started when she was just five years old. As a young girl Zoe was teased by her classmates because her skin was so dark. Instead of feeling sorry for herself, she created a line of dolls that she gives away to other little brown girls to help them feel included.
Now a sixth-grader at the same school where she was initially bullied, Zoe is thriving and tells us:
"I really wanted to find a way where I can let little brown girls know that their image is beautiful no matter what anyone else says. And I thought, 'Dolls in their image would be a great way to show them that. I think its important that everyone gets a doll that looks like them.'"
