From the tech industry to stage and screen, Sonoma County residents, age 30 and under have been making their mark.

We have selected a few inspiring individuals, that we see doing great things in the future.

Our selections include business owners, like Allyson Ahlstrom, who started her own clothing boutique for needy teens in Windsor when she was just 14. Artists like Maria De Los Angeles who grew up in Roseland and just finished her graduate degree in art at Yale University. Athletes like swimmer Maya DiRado who brought home Olympic gold for Santa Rosa. And academics like Theo St. Francis, paralyzed from the chest down from a diving accident and making a dramatic comeback. He is studying in ocean engineering at M.I.T., and recently accomplished a swim from Alcatraz to San Francisco with the assistance of flotation devices.
