A Little About Us
My name is Lexi Covey, and I am currently a senior at Prospect Hight School. I started WVB when I was a sophomore at Saint Viator High School. During the spring of 2018, I explained to my family that I wanted to do more charity work than just what is required at my school. My dad suggested that I should start my own charity if I was serious about wanting to get more involved. For weeks I contemplated what type of charity I wanted to create or get involved in. During those weeks, I began to draw sketches of swimsuits just for fun. I never expected to create something from them. But one day, I asked my parents if I could create a swimsuit company and donate a portion of the proceeds to charity. My parents thought this would be a great idea because I virtually live in a swimsuit.
Over the summers, my family lives at our lake house located on Geneva Lake in Williams Bay, Wisconsin. This is one of the many factors that led to my desire to start this business. From 9:00 AM to 12:00 AM each day of the summer, swimsuits basically become a second skin to me. I have always had a love for the water since I was a young girl. Once my parents put me in a lake, pool, or ocean it was like prying a dog away from its bone to get me out. My love for the water is another reason why this company is a perfect fit for me.
I decided to donate the proceeds from my company to the Union League Boys and Girls Club. My grandparents, Frank Michael Covey Jr. and Patricia Covey, were greatly involved in the Union League Boys and Girls Club, which is why I chose to donate the proceeds to this organization. My grandparents have had a large impact on my life, especially when it comes to service. When I think of them, I think of their charitable mindset and their loving nature. They always put others first. They did everything in their power to give back to others. This is their legacy— the legacy that I would like to continue.
