Wyoming native and founder of Yellowberry, Megan Grassell, 19, was named one of Huffington Post's most fearless teens in 2014. She joins an impressive list including: Mo’ne Davis, 13; Malala Yousafzai, 17; Carleigh O'Connell, 14; Joshua Wong 18; and Neha Gupta, 18.

“After taking her 13-year-old sister shopping for bras, Grassell was perturbed by how sexualized most of the available choices were for young girls; everything seemed to have padding and underwires.

She initially raised $42,000 through Kickstarter—well above the $25,000 goal she set for herself—and now runs a full-fledged online retailer." —J.M.
