[ARCHIVED] Helping Young Women

Robyn Hernandez

Model for bella Mi BellaRobyn Hernandez

Every girl wants to feel like a princess. It's Robyn Hernandez's goal to help every girl feel that way! 

In the first image, you can see one of her models, Yarileysys Ruiz, who is 17, in one of Robyn's dresses. Robyn pulls double duty. She's a teacher at Odessa Collegiate Academy but worked at Permian High School before then. The Odessa woman also owns Bella Mi Bella, a dress shop. A shop was not originally in the cards for her. 

It started when Robyn would hear students talk about how they couldn't afford a prom dress. It touched her, so she went above and beyond and bought them special dresses. The Odessa woman also worked with charities to help girls in need find their prom dresses. She even took it a step further and altered them if needed. That sparked the idea of starting a business.

Then COVID hit, so she made a mobile shop traveling all over West Texas selling Quinceañera dresses. She made a name for herself doing that as well! People even call her shop the "one-stop Quince shop!" After COVID, she could finally open her dream of a storefront. For every five dresses they sell, they give one back to a girl in our community! Bella Mi Bella works closely with schools and organizations to find young ladies in need of gowns. They get to pick a brand-new dress from the shop! 

Robyn's goal is to give back to the community by impacting young women. Her employees are either in college or college-bound. Another way she makes a difference, she gives a book scholarship to every employee who's in college.
