How We Got Started

Hello!  I am Georgiana Katsingris, 19 years-old and the proud creator and CEO of Wäkkii, LLC. When my brother and I were little we used to run around with long paper dinosaur tails attached to our bums. It was one of the best childhood memories of mine that would later inspire me to share with others.  I have always wondered what it would be like to own my own business and always have wanted to.  I found out about the Young Entrepreneurs Academy, which is a nationwide program and joined. At 14 years old I was taught me how to bring my dream business to reality and beyond. I participated in the local investor panel and made it all the way to Rochester, where I won first runner-up at the Regional Semi-finals. You might not know what the Young Entrepreneurs Academy is but it is a wonderful program that breaks the limit of what you think you can achieve.
