GLAM Virtual eBay took place in June, with over 70 girls taking part in our immersive online enrichment program. Girls between the ages of 8 and 12 joined us over a four-week period, hearing from phenomenal women in tech at eBay as well as incredible guest speakers. Together, we covered GLAM’s 8 Pillars: Leadership, Strategy, Teamwork, Entrepreneurship, Creativity, Computer Coding, Business Skills and Public Speaking.
Our Final Mission puts all that the girls have learned into practice, coming up with a business idea and pitching it in just three minutes on camera! We were overwhelmed by the response and our judges at eBay had a tough time choosing just one winner! In fact, it resulted in two girls scooping up 1st prize:
Akshara, aged 8, won 1st prize for her pitch: Show Away Art
The eBay judges and GLAM were blown away by Akshara’s app idea! Everyone loved watching Akshara’s pitch, and we all felt that if Show Away Art was launched, it would be global app within a year. “Keep on presenting— Akshara, you’re a natural, and keep doing your artwork, too! Well done on totally nailing your financials and your pitch!”
Hasini, aged 11, won 1st prize for her pitch: Beads for Earth Our Judges at eBay and GLAM really loved both Hasi
