Queen of Raw: Stephanie Benedetto


Stephanie Benedetto is a former corporate lawyer who found her path to change the world. Prior to starting Queen of Raw, Stephanie worked as a lawyer in the fashion, media/entertainment, start-up, and technology industries and co-founded a sustainable textile manufacturing facility. While spending a lot of time in factories and warehouses, she saw perfectly good fabric collecting dust. These would eventually be burned or sent to the landfill. There was no alternative. This was when Stephanie realized that there was a supply demand mismatch — and she wanted to do something about it. Today, Stephanie is the CEO and Founder of Queen of Raw, a marketplace to buy and sell unused textiles. The company keeps these materials out of landfills and turns pollution into profit.

“Don't doubt that you can make a difference and you can solve problems and absolutely go change the world,” says Stephanie.

Stephanie was selected to join the Circular Economy Solver Class in the recently concluded 2019 Solve Challenge from MIT Solve. MIT Solve is an initiative of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology that advances lasting solutions from tech entrepreneurs to address the world's most pressing problems. The incoming Solver class was selected by Solve’s expert judges and was selected from a pool of nearly 1,400 applicants from over 100 countries.

After a rigorous process, Queen of Raw, with Stephanie at its helm, was chosen as a promising Solver who will drive transformational change.

Emma Yang - Timeless
Creator of the Timeless App

”Technology is empowering me to help patients that I may not know personally, but it lets my vision and my work have a greater impact – which is what really motivates me to work on Timeless and improve on it – because I want to be able to help people all around the world who have Alzheimer’s and face the similar challenges that I do.”

Why we love this episode:

Emma Yang is a tech genius and force for good. When we interviewed Emma, she was just a freshman in highschool. Her age never stopped her from being one of the youngest people in the world to combat a global problem. At 14 years old, she launched Timeless, a mobile app that helps Alzheimer’s patients stay engaged and connected to loved ones. Emma’s journey will move you to keep chasing after your goal — a project or cause you care deeply for — no matter how seemingly impossible it is to achieve.

 

Lauren Paul and Molly Thompson - Kind Campaign
Founders of Kind Campaign

”We drove all over the country and went into schools and just shared this idea and this message that you know kindness is better it feels better and how important healthy female friendships are.”

Why we love this episode:

During their early 20s, Lauren and Molly took on a mission to uncover the truth about girl-against-girl bullying. A decade later, their nonprofit Kind Campaign continues to make a profound impact on girls all over the country. This episode shares great tips on how we can inspire young people to be kinder to each other, and how they can create change within and outside their school hallways.

Karamo Brown - The Educated Rebel
Television Host and Author

 I think too many times we think that, to be better people, we have to help a million amount of people. If we can make it for people to understand that they just need to love and to care for themselves, and be kind to themselves and be compassionate and be better, then the world would get better just through that.”

Why we love this episode:

Karamo shares how his name, which means ‘educated rebel’ has helped shape who he is today — and how fatherhood taught him how to be a better human being. In this episode, we learn that in order to be an empathetic listener and compassionate human being, self-respect is crucial. Karamo’s emotional and colorful journey is a reminder of what truly connects us as humans, and why we shouldn’t look at each other based on the color of our skin, who we love or whatever it is that divides.
