Georgie Demir of Ocean Grove has reached the semi-finals of the Berry Street Create Change Award in the prestigious Victorian Young Achiever Awards.
The next round of judging, which determines the finalists will be held on 13 March.
Georgie, 14, started her own business, Arkoun, where she makes specially designed soaps herself and 100 per cent of the profits are then handed over to help build wash houses in Cambodia.
Georgie makes the soaps from scratch at home and with interesting names such as ‘Bee Kind to Others’, ‘Hello Darkness My Old Friend’, ‘Don’t be Afraid to Sparkle’ and ‘Cambodian Sunshine’, it’s clear that Georgie is a young entrepreneur with a big heart and loads of imagination.
Georgie’s soaps are available at or from Beachside Blooms and the Health Creation Centre in Ocean Grove, Great Ocean Road Wholefoods in Anglesea and Surfcoast Kids in Torquay.
Winners will be announced at an awards gala presentation dinner on Friday 18 May at Flemington – The Event Centre. All nominees regardless of judging results are invited to attend and will be presented with a framed certificate on stage to honour their achievements and community contribution.
