Nayo Wright is a 10-year-old fifth grader who is also a Friend from the Fort Pierce (Florida) Church Trailblazers Pathfinder Club. Nayo is also creator and business owner of Nayo Safiyah Naturals.
To raise money to pay her way to attend the camporee in OshKosh, Wisconsin, this year, Nayo decided to turn her soapmaking honor into a fundraiser.
Nayo and her siblings expanded on the healthful principles of the Seventh-day Adventist Church by creating something that would make a difference in the way people take care of their skin. Her philosophy: “We know that our skin is one of the largest organs of the body, so we need to feed and nourish it with healthy foods, just as we feed our body healthy and nutritious foods.”
Nayo’s soaps use organic ingredients, most of which help either to fight inflammation or to remove harmful toxins from our bodies. She works on her soaps early in the morning, after family worship, and again in the evenings.
Sales from Nayo’s soaps have raised enough funds to help her and her siblings attend the camporee—and all because she took a Pathfinder honor and made it into something really incredible!
