Sarai Umansor Morales, a senior at Central East Florida’s Palm Beach Gardens High School, views a problem simply as a personal challenge to innovate a solution.

That’s what entrepreneurial minds do.

That’s what Morales’ father did when he immigrated to the United States from El Salvador, unable to speak the language but with a need to provide for his family. It’s a problem that can be found amid the nation’s 51% of adults from Salvadoran descent who are not proficient in English. Morales, a natural translator, was the solution to that language gap. At 8 years old, she teamed up with her dad to start a successful landscaping and lawn care business.
