It was 2013 and Megan had a little sister who needed to wear a bra for girls but was offered the bras for women. They found only padded, push up bras with wiring. It was the time when she realized that the market needed comfortable, age-appropriate bras for teens.
That was when she thought of setting up her own company, Yellowberry using her savings. She was only 17 then, was a busy high school junior and a nationally ranked competitive skier. She also launched a Kickstarter campaign that raised $41,795 and she began manufacturing and shipping bras.
Media around the country picked up on Megan’s story—Fortune magazine, Fast Company, The Huffington Post, The New York Times, Good Morning America, The Today Show and others.
She was selected as one of TIME Magazine’s 25 Most Influential Teens in 2014. Huffington Post named her one of the 14 Most Fearless Teens in 2014. In 2015, Megan was named one of the 24 Millennials to Watch by Yahoo.
She has been featured on the TODAY Show, The New York Times, Fast Company, Inc. Magazine, Forbes Magazine, Seventeen and Teen Vogue.
She served as a member of the Barbie Global Advisory Board in 2015. She is a recipient of the 2016 Thiel Fellowship Grant and was named to the 2016 Forbes 30 Under 30 list in Retail and Ecommerce.
