Enjoy this inspiring video, made by Bella Brown, one of the 2018 DRI winners. It was a part of Bella’s application for the 2018 DRI Challenge, where she presented an idea of opening a coffee house that would primarily be staffed by young folks, who are “differently-abled”: with challenges like autism, attention deficit disorder, and more. This was inspired by Bella’s witnessing her brother being involved with an innovative program in Winston-Salem called Cam’s Coffee.
Progress update, spring 2019: Bella has all the pieces in place for the Cam’s Coffee idea to manifest in Davie County. Now it’s just a matter of helping the Cam’s Coffee folks raise capital to open this second location. Bella says that she had ideas before about helping people but didn’t really think she could actually do it. She’s learned that if you care enough and work hard, you can actually do things that make a difference.
