These Kids Are Flipping Houses To Help Build Their Community

Reality TV is has a number of shows that highlight the fast paced, rough and tumble world of house flipping featuring adults who specialize in this area. Enter 9 year old Alianna Hines – she is the boss and CEO of Junior Flips, LLC, a company run by kids that takes distressed properties and transforms them into beautifully renovated single family homes in Washington, DC. and Maryland.


In 2017, Alianna and 5 other Elementary School Kids ages 7 to 13 years old grew tired of traditional video games and watching TV. They had an inspirational chance meeting with Oprah Winfrey and with the help of a bit of seed money from one of their parents, they partnered up and launched Jr. Flips.

Alianna is a unique young lady. Along with Jr. Flips, she is an accomplished entrepreneur with multiple projects ranging from a makeup line to her own book that teaches kids how to start their own businesses. In the Real Estate world, her process is much like adult flippers but she knows how to focus the power and enthusiasm of kids to manage deadlines, inspections, conflicts, finances and all the other typical "adult" issues until she ultimately makes a profit. "It's good to work with kids, especially at my age," she explains. "I haven't seen any other thing like this on TV or Social Media. I feel like we are starting something new."

Alianna isn't in this business just for the extra allowance money. Once her team finishes a job and sells the renovated property, they reinvest the proceeds into the next property. She gives a large part of her profits back to the community, to help rebuild and enrich the lives around her and make it a better place to live. So far, Jr. Flips has earned over $300,000 and her goals are to flip 100 homes for 100 families, reach $1,000,000 in sales, and start a foundation that would build and run a camp where kids can learn all the skills they would need if they wanted to start a career of their own flipping houses.

Her Aunt Monique was a bit surprised when her niece spoke to her about her charitable ideas. "It showed me that even at a very young age, she is morally conscious about her family and community and it spoke to her character and her compassion for other people."

Don't be surprised if you start seeing a lot more about Alianna. She is also a motivational speaker, has appeared on the Steve Harvey Show (and gave him a Jr. Flips donation!), and was nominated for the Ebony 100 Power list. The sky's the limit for this rising star so launch the story and watch her soar.

Dance Gave Her Love, a Community, and an Identity

At 2 1/2 years old, Shaina Schwartz and her Mom went to see the Nutcracker. Even though this was the first time she had ever seen any kind of a dance performance, as soon as it was over she excitedly said, "Mommy, that's what I want to do!"

Her long road toward becoming a dancer and then an owner and founder of a dance company had its share of ups and downs. Shaina started taking ballet lessons at a professional studio in New Hampshire at 5 years old and in her younger years, the regimen and regularity of the training was a good fit for her serious nature.

Blind Waiter Serves Up Diner Classics and Life Lessons

The flickering neon sign reflects eerily off the aging, chrome exterior; a long smooth marble counter with spinning stools draws your gaze left and right as you enter; the checkered linoleum floor seeps under the rows of back-to-back leather booths enveloped by the rain streaked wrap-around windows. You may think you've entered a typical American roadside eatery, but your experience here will be anything but ordinary.

You have just stepped into the Bendix Diner, a staple in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey since the 1940's. It's no surprise that The Bendix can serve up a sizzling Burger with deep fried onion rings and a frothy chocolate shake. What is unique about this meal is the waiter who delivers it to your table – his name is John Diakakis, and he is blind.
