EY Youth Scholarship
Living in Ecuador, Switzerland and now Miami has not only allowed Karen Bonilla to learn five languages, but it has allowed her to observe how the economy and businesses function in different cultures. She has accumulated invaluable knowledge about economics and other business experiences that gradually deepened her curiosity about the business and entrepreneurship sphere, which drove her to create and foster her own business venture, Lepsy’s App.
The catalyst for the development of Lepsy’s App was her 5-year-old sister’s traumatic experience observing a classmate’s epileptic seizure. Karen created an app that explains epilepsy to young children ages 3 to 5, in a colorful and interactive manner.
