Emilee Palomino, Founder of Smarty Girl
My daughter loves sharks, dinosaurs, robots and airplanes.
But clothes shopping had me puzzled. It seems clothing designers decided girls aren't interested in STEM (science, technology, engineering, math).
I didn't know anything about starting a clothing line, but I did know that young girls deserve more options than hearts and flowers.
Young girls aspire to be what they see.
That's why I created leggings that empower my daughter to be whatever the heck she wants to be. (Bonus: Running this company has empowered me.)
The Smarty Girl brand encompasses my greatest passions — motherhood, female empowerment, art, fashion and STEM.
Empower a Girl, Empower the World

I've found a sisterhood of like-minded moms whose fierce girl power energy is shaking up the idea of what young girls are.
Spoiler alert: Our daughters are future doctors, teachers, presidents, astronauts, artists and engineers who will change the world.
