Willow Smith, The University of Texas, Austin
Home School, Flagstaff, AZ
Willow has been business-minded since childhood. While she once sold eggs to neighbors, she now instructs over twenty students in her horseback riding business. Willow recalls the trust-building process with a young girl who both loved and feared horses. She enabled the young girl to overcome her hesitations by gaining confidence in herself and her abilities. Willow continues her mentoring and leadership skills by coaching both basketball and soccer. She is a member of the track and field team and a charter member of her school’s chapter of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
