The idea of creating a detachable visor came to me when I started putting on a baseball cap under my helmet while I was riding my bike or scooter to school. After a few uncomfortable rides, I realized that there is a need for a more practical solution, and decided to design a visor for sports helmets. I was a student of the Young Entrepreneurs Academy of Manhattan Beach at the time, I was 12 years old and was excited to learn the process of creating a business. Not very long after that and with the help of my supervisors and parents, Helm-A- Cap was born.

Through the program, I was named the runner-up of the YEA's Shark Tank-style Investor Panel event where I was awarded with seed capital for my business. Competing as one of the youngest students in my YEA class, this was a major feat for me. 

Now, I'm an 18 years-old 12th grader, getting ready for college. My company paved the way for me to choose business management & economics as a career. I can't wait to experience what life will offer me in the future.

Majority of the proceeds from sales go directly to my college fund. Additionally, I have chosen a worthy cause to contribute since not everybody in the world is so fortunate to have access to transportation let alone recreational sports. Part of our proceeds go to WHEELS 4 LIFE, a non-profit charity, that provides bicycles to people in great need of transportation for work/school/health throughout the developing world.
