Auntie Karen® Foundation “Empowering, Enlightening & Educating through the Arts”

October 11, 2008 Dear Future Millionaire: Welcome to the sixth annual Auntie Karen’ s Young Entrepreneurs Conference. In 2001, we had a dream to showcase the best young minds in our region. Today you will have a chance to meet some of them. A Chinese proverb reminds us that “ There are many paths to the top of the mountain, but the view is always the same.” Today you will have a chance to hear how our entrepreneurs made it to the top of the mountain. It is my hope that you will start your own journey toward the top. . My Auntie Karen F.A.I.T. H. principles continue to guide my journey to the top. My hope is that you will read and adopt these concepts to your life. (Find a purpose or goal; Ask for help; Invest in your mind; Take time to plan; Help someone else). You will see examples of these principles in action throughout the day! I would like to thank The Auntie Karen Board, the 2008 Conference Committee, Volunteers and Sponsors for making this day possible. We spent months organizing this day especially for you!!! I hope you take away something from this conference that will encourage you to start your own business. Remember, all great things begin with an idea! Enjoy the day! Sincerely,

Karen Alexander President and CEO

The idea for the business came when Chestina was learning how to drive and encountered other drivers making angry comments and gestures. While using the product for her safety, it gained attention from many other motorists, parents and teenagers. There was such a demand from other parents and teenagers to obtain the product, she convinced her parents to open a business to allow other teenagers to experience the benefits of driving in a safer and more controlled environment. Her goal was to help eliminate the possibility of fatalities, stress, anxiety and road rage associated with learning how to drive.

Larry Alston / Lauren Mills Larry Alston & Lauren Mills, Entertainers

Being four years apart did not stop us from being so close. We were born in Sumter, SC I was born on September 12, 1990 and my brother was September 22, 1994. We have been performing all our lives together and apart. Our first performance together was in June 1997, at the “Night at the Apollo” talent contest hosted by the Sumter NAACP. Where we won first place gospel. As the years went by, we keep singing in church where there were two youth choirs. One for the children under the age of thirteen and another for the kids thirteen and up. Though was not of age to sing on the “big kid’s choir” I had voices as if I were. On many occasions, I was asked to sing with them for certain songs. Larry on the other hand did not want to. In 2004, I decided to take up piano. In 2005, I decided to stop so I may focus on my vocals. When I stopped, Larry decided to start. From then on, we know as the dynamic duo. I would sing and he would play. Other than, the piano he plays the drums, organ, saxophone, and keyboard. I’ve been trained to sing anything from soprano to first tenor. When we first began, Larry was not into singing as much as playing that is why he is the musician and I am president for youth choir at church. Currently I am a freshman in college and Larry is a freshman in high school. Though we are in two different world music will always bring us back together.
