THE HIGH FLYER post is by Sally C. Krisel, Board President, and M. René, Executive Director, of the National Association for Gifted Chidren.
Heidi Hudicka, co-founder of FizzeeLabs, shares her thoughts on how important it is to have successful women role models that can encourage girls in continuing to pursue their dreams even when faced with boundaries.
Joey Hudicka, 16, and Heidi Hudicka, 11, are the founders of Fizzee Labs. Each company has a journey and Fizzee Labs started with Joey playing with a pile of trading cards after hockey practice at 5 years old, and he turned this pile of cards into a strategy game that would eventually be on the App Store. Heidi began her entrepreneurial career when she was just 4 years old, designing her own fashion clothing line for her dolls, and she is combining her love of fashion with her love of play, to make sure everything Fizzee Labs creates is fun!
