Teen Recipes For Biz Success


With organic cookies and healthy treats for diabetics, success is sweet for 17-year-old entrepreneur DeAnna Swann-Mayo.

Swann-Mayo, founder and owner of My Sweet Tooth LLC, received the Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award from the Prince George’s Chamber of Commerce on June 1.

Swann-Mayo, who lives in Brandywine, developed her recipes about five years ago as part of her home schooling assignments, said her mother, Takhia Mayo. Mayo asked her daughter to come up with an idea she could use to serve the community while developing her own interests. For another lesson, she charged her daughter with creating a recipe.

“She decided to create a cookie company for people who are lactose intolerant like she is,” said Mayo. “She really got into it.”
