Youth of the Year
To Speak at Celebrate the Children 2017
Arianna Montrose, an 18-year-old Senior at Liberty High School in Poinciana and budding entrepreneur, has been named 2017 Kiwanis Club of Orlando Foundation Youth of the Year. Arianna will serve as the keynote speaker at this year’s Celebrate the Children Gala, chaired by Jacob Stuart, on April 28.
The Youth of the Year Competition recognizes members of Boys & Girls Clubs who represent the organization’s three priorities: Academic Success; Good Character & Citizenship; and Healthy Lifestyles. Arianna was selected through a competitive judging process of 5 finalists, who were themselves selected from among the more than 1,200 teens served by BGCCF.
A five-year member of BGCCF’s Poinciana Teen Center, Arianna distinguished herself from the competition with her successful track record as an entrepreneur. She is the founder and co-owner of Layers of Love, which manufactures and sells ready-to-eat cheesecakes in a jar. Through this business, Arianna earned enough money to fund a recent trip to London with her high school.
Arianna is dually enrolled at Liberty and Valencia College, maintains a 4.2 GPA, and hopes to attend Harvard, Cornell, Stanford or the University of Miami in the fall. She will be the first member of her family to attend college. A natural leader, Arianna has served as President of the Keystone Club, Captain of her school’s Speech and Debate team and Youth Director at New Horizon Bible Fellowship.
On March 27, Arianna will spend a day job-shadowing Tupperware Brands’ Elinor Steele, Vice President of Global Communications, at the corporate headquarters in Kissimmee. Tupperware is acclaimed internationally for its unique marketing strategies; last year sales reached $2.2 billion.
Celebrate the Children 2017, BGCCF’s annual gala dinner and auction, will take place on April 28 at the Orlando World Center Marriott. For more information on partnership opportunities, contact Pamela Sible at email@example.com or (407) 841-6855.
