HANNAL LEIGH FOR SPECTRUM DESIGNS: TEEN WITH AUTISM USES CROWDFUNDING TO LAUNCH T-SHIRT BUSINESS


Combining her love of fashion, the alphabet, and the color green, 15-year-old Hannah Greenberg is creating a new T-shirt line. But it’s not your typical clothing line: the teen has autism, and the goal of the project is to help others with the same disorder. The shirts will be created by Spectrum Designs, a company composed entirely of employees with autism.

Hannah describes herself to the Huffington Post as a “teenage girl with autism who loves fashion.” But she’s also an entrepreneur. Using gofundme.com, Hannah is reaching towards her goal of $5,000 to cover start-up costs for the T-shirt line.

“I created the A-Z series; it’s characterized by my zany curly hair coupled with my love of the alphabet and my favorite color green,” she tells HuffPost. “I always dreamed of becoming a fashion designer and a portion of the sales from each T-shirt will help employ adults with autism.”
