ZIRUI (Mount Holyoke College)
A small, yet effective and long-awaited idea. This is the feedback we got after publishing the story of Regina Ye, a senior at Mount Holyoke College who had a bad experience with her suitcase and decided to solve her problem once and for all. After a bottle of make-up remover leaked and ruined all her clothes, Ye invented ZIRUI – a magnetic beauty case that stores liquids safely. The Kickstarter campaign she launched, which was 100 percent funded, raised almost $21,000.
