ENTREPRENEURSHIP HIGHLIGHT: MOZIAH BRIDGES

One of our three pillars at Pearl School of Modeling is entrepreneurship. We challenge our Pearls to create a business plan, implement it, and begin their business in their semester. We felt it important to add an entrepreneur highlight to the newsletter” to bring awareness to the numerous business owners that could positively influence our readers.

Moziah Bridges always had a vision of looking his best. At the age of four he began to wear a suite whenever he could. He started his company at the age of nine. He couldn’t find an accessory to fit his personality or style so he created his own. He pitched his ideas to Shark Tank with the help of his mother Tramica. Although he did not end up with a deal from any of the Sharks, he ended up with the mentorship of Daymond John.  He landed on Time Magazine‚Äôs Most Influential Teen List in 2015 and was invited to the White House by former President Barack Obama. To date he has landed a partnership with the National Basketball Association (NBA), has an internationally recognized brand, and plans to study fashion and design in college.
