Miss Possible, Illinois
135 miles south of Chicago in Champaign-Urbana, a startup of young women are designing dolls that empower girls worldwide.
While studying in their University of Illinois dorm rooms, engineering students Supriya Hobbs and Janna Eaves brainstormed ways they could inspire young girls to pursue their dreams.
After a hugely successful Indiegogo campaign, the young entrepreneurs are now working to manufacture their Miss Possible dolls, as well as build the companion apps.
