Juliette is not your typical teenager; she’s already on her way to changing the world. At just 11 years old, and profoundly affected by the loss of her grandfather to motor neurone disease (MND), she founded CSJ leMoNaiD, a company that aims to find a cure by raising funds for MND research at Macquarie University.
Armed with a mission to ‘stop MND in its tracks through the power of sour’ Juliette bottled her recipe in her Mum’s kitchen and began selling it at an organic market in Sydney. Her concoction is now bottle by an Australian company and is available nationwide.
CSJ leMoNaiD gives 100% if its proceeds to Macquarie University and is currently helping to fund a Clinical Trials Coordinator position. View more about CSJ LeMoNaiD.

Over the past three years, $1.3 million has been raised by firies enabling the MND Research Centre to progress its research by leaps and bounds.
