Kaylee Taube, Phoenix Arizona, Penrose Academy
Kaylee was inspired to enter the makeup industry by Elizabeth, a teenager afflicted with the rare bone cancer, Ewing’s Sarcoma. Now disease-free for 17 months, Elizabeth aspires to start a makeup line that will help fund childhood cancer research. She also distributes “positivity pouches” that cover patients’ IV poles. “This scholarship will help me advance my education so that I can help others like Elizabeth, and use my power to help those who need it most,” says Kaylee.
