Alina Morse is not your typical 13-year-old. She’s the CEO and founder of Zollipops, a company that makes sugar-free candy. Zolli Candy “reduces acidity and neutralizes your mouth’s PH levels after you eat,” which prevents cavities.

Morse became the youngest person ever to land the cover of Entrepreneur, met with Michelle Obama in the White House (twice!), and now sells her product in major retailers like Whole Foods, Walmart, and Kroger.
