    Amber Runyon is hospice nurse who became a social entrepreneur.  She founded Legacy and Eleventh Candle Co. out of the desire to bring hope to women both in the United States and in Ethiopia who’ve been vulnerable to human trafficking, abuse, exploitation, and addiction, focusing on providing a therapeutic work setting that allows all women a fair chance and opportunity to grow. The bottom line: Amber believes that if we teach little girls to dream, they will the force that changes this world. But more than that, if we can teach broken women to dream like little girls again, it will be a force that the world has yet to see.
