Entrepreneur Name: Briana Liles

Business Name: State Student Hero, Texas, United States

Local Hero Briana who helped her favorite charities by selling Lemonade from a glittery pink stand won a state Student Hero Award when she managed to raise more than $7000 for the National Alopecia Areata Foundation. The thing Briana liked the most about the honor she received was that she gets a chance to be among peers who like to help others and that the community realizes that there are people helping others.

Briana won various other awards and titles. In 2018 she received the title of National Lemonade Day Entrepreneur of the Year when she raised $975. She won the Incredible Kid Award for raising more than $2500 for Children’s Alopecia Project. Liles also took part and won in the Copperas Cove Five Hills Scholarship Pageant in 2018. She raised money and created awareness about the Children’s Alopecia Project.

Along with the fundraising Briana also collects supplies for a local animal shelter and volunteers at a nursing home.
