"I thought it would be nice to give back ..."

If Hannah Grace is any indication, the future is safe in the hands of the next generation. This 10-year-old has come up with an entrepreneurial way to both make a name for herself and, at the same time, to raise money for an important cause that affects her and many kids like her.

Hannah, a self-described "girly girl," is selling homemade bath bombs — taking advantage of a lifestyle trend she says colors the bath water, makes your skin soft, smells nice, and sizzles — and is proving to be a young go-getter. Per Grace, she makes the bath bombs for about $6, has sold about 700 on her website BeYOUtiful, and she has made about $4,000 overall.

"I thought it would be nice to give back, so 20 percent of all the sales go to [the] Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation because I have diabetes and they're trying to fight for a cure," Hannah says in a 60 Second Docs video. "I've grown up with diabetes — that's just how I live. I want to give back for people in need and I think it would be really nice to help them find a cure."

According to the site, it was when Hannah was just 11 months old that she was diagnosed with Type-1 diabetes and, while her parents were worried, she proved to have "the tenacity and strength that would cause her to strive, not just survive." Hannah is also described as having "determination to do whatever she set her mind to do.

"Hannah calls her brand BeYOUtiful because she believes that being beautiful means being yourself, no matter what challenges you endure," the site reads. "At just ten years old Hannah is proving that she can do all that she sets her mind to do, and nothing, not even T1D, can stop her."
