Student Spotlight Nine-Year-Old Entrepreneur Alessandro Concas
Alessandro Concas is a special kind of businessman – at just nine years old, he’s already released his first book, The A to Zs of Fighting Boredom, which gives kids endless ways to keep themselves busy in the face of boredom.
Alessandro, a star student at Tesoro Del Valle Elementary, enters the fourth grade this coming fall, and is enthusiastic about using his book to spread cheer and raise funds for a good cause. While part of the proceeds will go towards his college fund and to various school fundraisers and projects, he’s made the decision to donate 10 percent of profits to Smile Train, an organization that helps kids with the surgeries and treatments required to treat cleft lips and palates. To his friends and family, he’s known as a responsible, driven, big thinker who’s always looking to share his love with others.
When he grows up, Alessandro shares that he wants to be an accomplished, well-known business owner, and plans to donate both his time and money to hospitals and animal shelters everywhere. Citing Elon Musk as his personal idol, Alessandro hopes to translate his love of math and numbers into a successful business venture for himself as he grows older.
At home, Alessandro likes to spend time with his beloved cat, Bijou, and splits his time between playing the piano and singing. Having grown up in an environment flooded with melodies and musical instruments, Alessandro is no stranger to the wonder and magic of music and has established himself as an admirable musician early in his childhood. He’s even developed a love for the spotlight – it’s not uncommon for Alessandro to take to the stage and perform either vocally or instrumentally.
You can find Alessandro’s book at his website, http://alessandroconcas.com, or stop by the Albertsons on Copper Hill or Valley Produce Market to pick up a copy in person.
