How do you turn a fear into fuel for action and success? Ask Mikaila Ulmer! After getting stung twice in one week, Mikaila was scared of bees. But thanks to some research, she decided she should protect them instead of run from them. She learned that honeybees play an important role in our ecosystem, but she also found that we have far fewer bees today than we did 50 years ago, with more dying each year. That's why she started Me & the Bees Lemonade, a company that supports beekeepers by using honey to sweeten its lemonade. Mikaila shares her journey as a young entrepreneur, bee ambassador, and student.
