Cam’s Coffee Creations Pop-Up Coffee Shop started as a confidence builder, for the now 9-year-old Camden Myers. Camden’s mother, Latasha Lewis, said, “Camden suffered from a traumatic brain injury his entire life,” yet she refused to let that be an excuse for him to give up.

Camden told me, “Because of my mom’s support, I always have a good attitude, and I love coming up with ideas for coffee.”  He created 10 different flavors, and we’ll share his favorite later.

Myers’ love for coffee and his creativity helped Cam’s Coffee Creations become a thriving business and the talk of Winston-Salem. Don’t be surprised to see the Pop up Coffee Shop in your neighborhood barbershops, beauty salons, and local events.

The handsome young businessman is making a name for himself in the business community as well. President and CEO of Maximum Enterprises, Reginald McCaskill, said, “This young entrepreneur took a very negative situation and tuned it into a positive. What a great inspirational for all.”

This past Friday, McCaskill presented Camden with “The New Comers Award,” at the fourth annual Triad Minority Business Expo Kick-Off and Awards Ceremony in Winston-Salem. The New Comers Award is given to a business or entrepreneur who has been established less than three years.  The awards ceremony was held at the Enterprise Conference and Banquet Center in Winston-Salem.

I had the pleasure of meeting the handsome and humble Camden Myers, and he quickly became one of my heroes.
