A Star on the Rise: Alexandria Grable – Spotlighting Our Youth
A German philosopher once said, “Mostly, it is loss which teaches us about the worth of things.” The loss of a loved one is difficult for everyone, but there are some that take that loss and turn it into something beautiful. 16-year old, Alexandria Grable lost her maternal grandmother to cancer three years ago and through her grief created her own online boutique in memory of her. Along with the help of her mother, Grable started Pamela June online boutique. The name of the boutique is a combination of her grandmother’s name: Pamela and her great grandmother’s name: June. The logo is a story in itself because each name is in the handwriting of the dearly departed.
The website has not only provided customers with stylish clothing and accessories, but gives back to local non-profits that are cancer driven. Recently she began selling bracelets with catch phrases that are geared towards the fight against cancer. One bracelet, in particular, is very special to her. The Hakuna Matata bracelet is special because this phrase is something that was expressed throughout the family as Pamela (Grable’s Grandmother) lost her fight to cancer. The accessories go for $10 and 100 percent of the proceeds made from these items will be donated to Circle of Hope of the Santa Clarita Valley.
Aside from being a philanthropist, entrepreneur Grable is an aspiring actress. The Grable family moved from Oklahoma to the SCV so that Alexandria and her brother can pursue acting. This young woman is taking life by the horns. Her mother describes her as someone who has a big heart. She is very focused and driven and has always been known to be an “old soul”. When posed with the question what are your proudest moments with your daughter, her reaction was a heart-felt, “There are just too many to list, the one thing I do know is, When I grow up I want to be just like her”. Alexandria Grable is an inspiration to many. Her story has shown that, in the words of her idol Kathleen Kennedy, “It’s funny where life can take you”.
