Lara Avsar

Founder, Her Little Story

Lara Avsar is an entrepreneur living between New York and Boston. In her first year of graduate school, Avsar discovered a life-changing statistic: girls’ self-esteem peaks at age nine. To combat that statistic, she launched Her Little Story, a feminist media company publishing storybooks introducing real female role models – not fictional characters – to young girls.

Born and raised in Alabama, Avsar earned her BA in Mathematics-Statistics and Middle Eastern Studies from Barnard College and is currently completing her MBA at Harvard Business School.
