“I really believe that people can tackle far more than they think they can,” says Veronika Scott, 24-year-old CEO and Founder of the “Empowerment Plan” in Detroit.

Scott’s company, which was inspired by a homeless woman who screamed at her, exclusively hires women from homeless shelters, who are then trained and given a chance to live a life in independence.

“I think women have a really difficult time understanding how valuable they are. The idea of self-worth is very important to me because I grew up a kid of addicts,” says Scott about her own experience.
