Sixth grader in Geneva starts her own business during pandemic

A sixth grader in Geneva has created her own business: ThetrendzDesign.

Ava Sweeny, 10, has started a business selling body butters and scrubs, as well as lip glosses and scrubs.

Sweeny got the idea during lockdown when everyone began starting small businesses and did her own research on everything from how to run a business to the benefits of her products.


Yvette Ortiz, of Earthly Possessions in downtown Geneva, hosted a space for Sweeny to hold a pop-up event and sell her product.

Ortiz hopes to host more events and promote young entrepreneurs in the future.

Sweeny’s products can be purchased on her Etsy site.
