Short Girl Crushing It - An Interview with Heidi Kelly (5'2")
ABOUT THE SHORT GIRL CRUSHING IT INTERVIEWS
Starting April, 2016, we are celebrating women 5 feet 4 inch and under "crushing it" doing what they love. We interviewed nine women from across industries to share their recent "crushed it" moments, career retrospectives, life wisdom, and more. Each week, we dive into one of their stories, and shared the monumental moments that have shaped their careers. Through their stories, we seek to inspire women, short and tall, to embrace their flaws and "crush it" doing what they love. This week's featured short girl is the 5'2" Heidi Kelly.

Girl Boss & Designer
"I really feel that the positive attitude I have had through everything has really helped me create a fun and funky business, HKelly designs."
Whenever I think that being a new mom is tough, I would have to tell myself to shut up when I see Heidi on Facebook working and crushing it doing what she loves - designing handbags while having to go through cancer treatments. She truly understands that we must not take life for granted because it can slip away from you anytime. Her business not only serves as an outlet for creativity, but also a way for her to support breast cancer patients by donating some of her revenues to organizations that are working hard in that area.
You can find Heidi's handbag designs (like the clutches she is holding in her picture) or connect with her via one of these places. A portion of the all proceeds from some of her bags, as well as all proceeds from a special T-shirt design go to the charity.
- For anyone who just wanna have fun and talk about bags, fashion, and styles, you will find her latest greatest stories from her blog — The Fashion Stop and its Facebook community group.
