Aylesbury schoolgirl praised for entrepreneurial spirit

It started with a piece of wrapping paper and now a girl in Aylesbury has her own little business going.

Ella Pearson decorated that paper with her own design and it went down so well, she started doing it on notebooks and vases to sell.

The 13-year-old told us she was so surprised it went down so well

"I can remember being so excited at the start because when we first launched my mum's phone was constantly pinging with orders.

"Now I'm up to 40 orders and just today posted a delivery to Scotland."

Ella had been getting bored of lockdown when she started creating the designs and it's led to a really busy time for her.

She has this advice for other teens:

"My advice would be that when you get an idea, stick with it and do whatever you can to make it happen.

"Small business, big dreams."

Ella has been praised by her teachers for the way she has made use of time away from school.

She's now planning on expanding the items she puts the design onto.
