Hi, my name is Madeline O'Neill and I’m 12 years old. I’m proud to call Eau Claire, Wisconsin my home. I first started making soap about two years ago during a summer class. That class was amazing and I learned a lot from Mr. King. Thank you! After that I met Ms. Bareis (the best art teacher on earth!!) and she inspired me and introduced me to the FUSE Program (Future U.S. Entrepreneurs through my local Royal Credit Union). I have learned so much and my life has changed dramatically. I try to see opportunity in everyday challenges and remember that big things can come from small ideas. I started to make soap on my own at my grandparents dinner table and now I have an entire room at home filled with supplies and dedicated to exploring my creativity with soap, lotions and shower steamers! I’m incredibly fortunate to have so much support from my family and friends. Thank you!!
