Kennedy Johnston

University of Georgia
Class of 2024

Promoting creative and entrepreneurial skills among youth.

A passionate young entrepreneur, Kennedy has already started her own small business and various other initiatives. Minks by Masai is a brand focused on embracing women’s natural beauty through lashes. Kennedy’s Stars is a program that provided young girls the opportunity to experience the sport of cheerleading and mentorship. After winning Teen Miss Georgia Earth 2018, she also founded Green Life, a program to spread awareness on the importance of environmental stewardship with elementary-aged students.

Throughout high school, Kennedy’s time was divided between her part-time job, caring for her siblings, balancing her rigorous IB course load, her extracurricular involvement, and running her own business. This extraordinary feat taught Kennedy the value of patience, persistence, and responsibility. Her passion for business leads her to the Terry School of Business at the University of Georgia.
