A natural-born fashionista, Mykal-Michelle is also in the process of starting her own fashion line for kids called MMH.

"I went to my mom, and I was like, 'Well, if we can't find what we like, let's just make it," she said. "So we're making a fashion line, and we want it to be accessible for all."

Her mom, Kimberly, is right there with her at every step.

"We know how big her dream is," Kimberly said. "She's already pitched to five studios at the age of 10. I am always helping her reach for the next. Being her person is a full-time job, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I love it."
