Zoe Oli

A bout of low self-esteem at the tender age of six set Zoe Oli on a mission to ensure black and brown girls with curly hair could love themselves and be confident in who they are.

With her mom Evana Oli’s support, 10-year-old Zoe gracefully juggles being in grade school and running Beautiful Curly Me, a social impact toy and media company that offers a popular line of diverse dolls and books authored by her. Forbes, Good Morning America, People and Black Enterprise are just some of the media outlets that have featured Zoe for her work toward empowering girls. She was recently named a Time and Nickelodeon Kid of The Year Finalist.

Zoe is a proud Atlantan who loves reading, art, music, all things STEM, and giving back to the community.
