About the Founder...
As a child, Angelina fell in love with her mother's red beret. She came to be known as the "girl with the red beret" at every modeling and acting event, and among friends and family. She stood out, not just because of her beret, but mostly because of her kindness.
Born with a peaceful, solid heart and unusually deep understanding of humankind, she was not afraid to put her voice on kindness out for the world to hear. In November 2013, she begged her mother to help her start a project she dreamed of... that of letting her generation know the lasting kind of strength and beauty lies inside oneself, not on the surface. But how do you show that? She needed something visible... This is how Red Beret was born.
If you'd like to learn more about Angelina's inspiration, click on this short piece her mother wrote about her life changing event. And this other one.
A Red Beret is a young person with solid principles, and a powerful heart. A respectful friend who is committed to being a leader in kindness as a strength. Because it's ok to be kind and humble, as long as you're rock solid inside...that makes you awesome! THAT moves the world forward.
