Text version of Sarah’s self-introduction video

Hi, My name is Sarah white, I’m co-founder and co-CEO of Little Bridge, where we make social media safe and fun for kids around the world.

My story of becoming an entrepreneur starts out like some of the greats; I dropped out of school. That’s how Bill Gates got started, right?

Well, not exactly. Bill Gates dropped out of Harvard. I dropped out of highschool when I was 16. I was a smart kid, I just had a big problem with being told what to do, especially when I didn’t see a reason to do it.

Despite leaving formal education many years before my peers, I’ve never stopped learning; and have always maintained a growth mindset.

I went straight from school into full-time work, and have since done every job you can imagine, all the while learning as much as I could. But I always wanted to do something bigger, I just didn’t know where to start.

It all changed for me when several years ago, I was fortunate enough to meet Emma Rogers, a seasoned entrepreneur who took a chance on me and became my mentor. In 2015 we founded Little Bridge.

I hope my unusual journey to becoming an entrepreneur can help inspire people who haven’t had the easiest transition to adulthood. My journey is also what makes me so passionate about edtech; as someone who struggled with formal education, technology opens up a world of opportunities to learn and develop outside of traditional schooling.
