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
