Eden Wilson is a YouTuber, entrepreneur, speaker, rhythmic gymnast, and Miss Chicago’s Outstanding Teen 2020. She is the owner of Lemonerdy.com, a website where she showcases her clothing and accessory line as well as many of the videos from the first three seasons of her YouTube show. Her goal is to inspire everyone to share their stories and pursue their dreams by sharing her various hobbies and talents from reading, coding, and trying interesting foods to making crafts, cooking, and hanging out with her friends. She has been a speaker at the SocaMom Summit where she spoke to authors and animators about how kids can start telling their stories through books and video, at the AFW Litfest, based in Montserrat, about how to tell stories that make an impact, and on BlackDoctor.org about prostate cancer awareness.
While prostate cancer awareness is the cause to which she dedicates the bulk of her advocacy, she also has made videos promoting voting, coronavirus safety, and healthy eating. If Eden looks familiar to you, maybe you saw her several years ago on Season One of Lifetime’s Child Genius when she was just eight years old. Today, she is a fifteen-year-old tenth-grade honor student, who enjoys working out virtually with her friends, baking muffins, and tutoring kids in reading. This self-described “renaissance girl” says that her aspiration is to “do all the things,” and to encourage her generation to live life fully.
