By Amanda Lewan on December 13th, 2014 / Comments

We were blessed to meet this young and inspiring entrepreneur over a year ago, when our co-working space Bamboo Detroit offered free office space to her family.

We first dubbed Asia Newson as Detroit’s Youngest Entrepreneur. At just ten years old in the original video you can see she already has an impressive business pitch down. Without a struggle she walks up to anyone in Detroit and pitches her crafted candles and her ambitions to train other young Detroit entrepreneurs. You can tell Asia really loves her work.

At Bamboo Detroit we’ve helped by offering her free space, website development, and other services to grow. Check out Asia Newson as she shares her story with ABC’s 20/20. Her pitch warms our hearts, and we hope it warms your heart too.

Check out her full story on 20/2o below.
