Ashley LeMieux

Ashley’s love for helping others flourished during her senior year of college when she was volunteering at an inner city high school in Phoenix, AZ. She saw the students around her struggling to enter college after high school. Many of them thought they just couldn’t achieve it.
So, Ashley set out to make a change. She started her company The Shine Project. The Shine Project allows students to come after school and create jewelry. All aspects of the project, from creation to shipping, help students get scholarships for college. And to top it all off, 100% of all donations made to the project go directly to students. We think Ashley and her company are doing amazing work for the local community, and we couldn’t be prouder! Check out their blog for fun updates on how the company is doing.
