Julia Saltzman ’17 has an entrepreneurial spirit and a sense for fashion. After taking second place in Laurel’s “Entrepreneurship Challenge” and then winning an award for “promoting sustainability and stewardship though entrepreneurship,” she decided to bring her business idea R3 (recycle, reuse, refashion) to fruition.

Saltzman repurposes clothes from current brands and many scraps of material to make new clothes. She has had the opportunity to sell her items at the Shaker Square Farmer’s Market as well as at Laurel’s Artisan Bazaar. She was also featured in the September issue of Cleveland Magazine.

Read more about Julia and R3 in the Cleveland Jewish News. The article was written by Laurel Junior, and CJN “Teen Talk” editor, Ariana Starkman

The Cleveland Jewish News (CJN) has made the decision to re-launch its all-teen section, “Teen Talk.” CJN named the three teenaged editors for 2015 and one is Laurel’s own Ariana Starkman ’16. She and the two other editors will cover sports, youth groups, opinion and entertainment. Ariana will bring her expertise from working on both The Voice and The Gator Byte.

Congratulations, Ariana!
