While teens are surrounded by a world of social media, selfies and hashtags, one teen in Fontana is making a difference by breaking the mold of conformity. Her name is Brittany Evans. Unlike most teens, at 18 Evans would rather be about business than taking tons of pictures to show off to her friends.
Her invention is called Sparkbudz (patent pending) it is an all-new earphone in which one can magnetically attach and detach when they are alone or with a friend.
Evans states that she came up with the concept for Sparkbudz while sitting at the kitchen dinner table discussing starting a tutoring business with her father. After putting everything down on paper and doing the numbers, she realized that the idea may not be a viable one at the moment. However, she states that her father suggested she invent something like her mother had previously done and while her father was speaking, she states that she began conceptualizing the idea.
“It’s a cool concept, I love it!” says Evans. “Every day I wake up and thank God for such an amazing, witty invention.” Evans is not only working on Sparkbudz but she is also balancing school as well. She is a college student currently attending RCC, majoring in communications.
Evans plans to become a motivational speaker and mentor and currently speaks at her church meetings sharing her testimony.
“I myself have been bullied, threatened and been backstabbed. I never want to see anyone go through what I have encountered.” She has since forgiven her enemies and works hard to fight against bullying. “You don’t have to start a big campaign to fight against bullying, you can start off small by giving advice to a friend or peer who is being bullied, or ultimately reporting it!” she states.
