Clever kids

Meet the GC’S very own Glit­ter Girl, Sophia Rizzo. She’s a 10-year-old kid­preneur who is bright­en­ing up the world, one tub of sparkly glit­ter at a time.

Tell us briefly how Glit­ter Girl all came about. I have al­ways wanted to own my own busi­ness since I was very young. When I was in Grade 2, I told my mum I was go­ing to be the head of Hello Kitty in Ja­pan as I was learn­ing the Ja­panese lan­guage at school. I would al­ways visit my Aunt’s shop in Bris­bane and she would teach me how to use the cash reg­is­ter, take money from cus­tomers for pay­ment and it was al­ways so much fun get­ting to count the money at the end of the day! When we were in Hawaii on hol­i­days in 2016, we vis­ited some shops where there was so many sparkly things to buy that we didn’t have back here in Aus­tralia. We were swim­ming in the ocean later that day and Mum asked me if I could open a busi­ness what would it be and what would I call it. I im­me­di­ately said “Glit­ter!” and I’d call it “Glit­ter Girl”. I knew ev­ery­thing I wanted it to sell and what it would be like. Rain­bows, uni­corns
