Kiara Liz Rivera, a 12-year-old entrepreneur and founder of Kiarita's Cakes, has partnered with @cafeamalove to celebrate Mom with a sweet and meaningful gift. Kiarita's Cakes is one of the 25 SEEDS Biz launched as part of the SEEDS Class of 2020, an entrepreneurship program by Friends of Puerto Rico.
Kiara loves baking with her mother, who has always supported her. She enjoys showing love through her recipes. For this time of the year, Kiara created a lovely recipe on a handwritten card, which was included in the Café Ama Love Box edition for Mothers' Day.
Kiara studies and lives in Aibonito, Puerto Rico. "My mom has always supported me, and that is why I want to share with many people (through my recipes) the love she has given me. She encourages me, and with the SEEDS program classes, I started my own business", said the 12-year-old entrepreneur.
Show gratitude by example.
Kiara and 50+ classmates study during the second cohort of our SEEDS program, first launched in 2019. Her idea to give back shows how generous her heart and family values are. "There is no heart kinder than Mom's heart. She teaches us that giving is the best way to fill our lives with sweetness and love, and what better a way than to send moms Puerto Rican coffee along with a meaningful gift to show our love", explained Angelique Sina, President of Friends of Puerto Rico.
Through the SEEDS Program, Friends of Puerto Rico and Café Ama seek to empower the youth of Puerto Rico as they explore, innovate, and learn. SEEDS is a STEAM-based after-school business education program for youth in the island. SEEDS allows students to tackle real-world business problems and participate in a mentoring program with business leaders of the island.
The Mother’s Day edition includes a Love Blend of your preference and the handwritten recipe by Kiara, in a beautiful Ama Box. For orders, information, and to get involved, visit www.cafeama.com or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
