Atlanta, Georgia… Fourteen-year-old Christon ‘Truth’ Jones who spent his summer earning six figures during the COVID pandemic has been named the keynote speaker for the youth segment of the iCreate Power of One Youth Summit, which is free.
Youth summit founder Geoffrey Ingram Sr., founded his first business in eighth grade. After seven years of putting on the Power of One Leadership Conference in person and watching his own children become entrepreneurs, he was inspired to welcome youth to the platform as speakers this year.
“We are often taught that in order to succeed we must study hard, go to a good college and so on but today’s youth are changing that dynamic and going beyond the lemonade stand,” said Ingram. “They are making more than their parents did and using social media and the internet to motivate and sell their products to the masses. With so much going on, we wanted to inspire not just kids but also parents to listen to these ideas. What better way to do that, than to bring these dynamic headline makers together.”
Cohosting the event will be motivational speaker and author Jordan L. Ingram, 10 along with journalist/actress/activist/author Alejandra Stack, 15 both of Atlanta. Additional youth slated to appear are Ziggy and Tootie Quinn, the youngest brick and mortar bakery owners in the USA; Christiana Alexander, a novelty soapmaker and girls empowerment facilitator; Miles Minishotta, the six-year-old photographer who has covered multiple red carpets and fashion week; and Simone Bridges, a pastry chef, motivational speaker and subscription box creator.
The free youth summit takes place on Saturday, October 24 at 11:00 a.m. and can be accessed via registration at http://www.icreateleadership.org
