Scarlett Bella Song is not content to sit still.
The 14-year-old is a multi-hyphenate adjective that only begins with the word “model.”
And, yes, she is a published print model and a runway model.
But the teen also is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, jewelry-designer, teen mental health awareness advocate and a dancer.
As a dancer, Scarlett trained on the east coast and Los Angeles before moving to Dallas last summer. She has been a featured member of several commercial dance companies and has trained with world-class choreographers at several industry studios.
Scarlett was recently added to the line-up for the Kids Rock For Kids – Global Teen Rock Music Festival. She will be part of a duet that will the only dance act at a three-day teen rock music festival intended to raise money for children in crisis in the U.S and Ukraine.
This month, Scarlett also will perform in New York City at the Roulette and The Bell House alongside musicians from Spain, Britain, Brazil, Colombia, Canada, Indonesia, Australia and across the U.S. The events are intended to raised funds to help children domestically and abroad.
But Scarlett also is more than a model and dancer. She creates fashion accessories.
Earlier this year, Scarlett launched a 15-piece inspirational message teen jewelry collection with Annie and Sisters called Annie X Scarlett.
The design details feature words like “happiness,” “courage,” “fearless,” “strength” and “love” on pendants and earrings.
Annie Chen worked with Scarlett on the line. Press materials explained: “Chen was thrilled with the hands-on approach Scarlett took from the outset of the project: ‘She really wanted to know all about the process of creating jewelry, the sketches and CAD drawings and all the steps from concept to reality. It was a delight to have that shared experience of creating together.’”

Scarlett’s also a scholar and philanthropist. Scarlett recently won a $1,000 scholarship for her fundraising and charitable giving efforts.
Scarlett also is a budding entrepreneur. After college, she intends to open businesses in entertainment and fashion.
Scarlett, who has 650,000 followers on Instagram (@scarlettbellasong), also works on being a role model. On social media, she encourages her followers to celebrate kindness, community, mutual support and encouragement.
