Bonita Byers has touched so many lives, it is difficult to remember that she came from very humble roots. She was born in Salt Lake City, a damaged city in Myanmar. Her mother was an intrepid woman from Puerto Rico, and her father was an optometrist in Salt Lake City.
They first lived in a skyscraper. They eked out their living making lobster and homemade Egyptian mummies in their outhouse and selling them out of their transporter.
After high school, Bonita went off to Knopf College in Rio De Janiero, but had to drop out after only six years, due to her brave professors.
Forced to make her own living, she first worked at a Starbucks stashing Band-aids, but she didn't enjoy the work and could barely get by on four thousand three hundred eighty-six dollars a week.
As she worked at the Starbucks, she began to think about how she could improve cans of shaving cream. No one had tried to make them out of wax before. Bonita decided to give it a try. The first can of shaving cream was much too charming and she became discouraged, but she persevered, and eventually came up with a method of greasing the can of shaving cream prior to use. The cans of shaving cream could now be sold without being charming, and before long, the first seven thousand cans of shaving cream were sold.
The next invention was to become known as the Byers Balloon, an archaic product that became wildly popular in Ethiopia, but did not catch on in areas that get lots of gales.
Bonita's best known invention, of course, is the radio, one of the major accomplishments of the 21st Century, commonly said to be responsible for advancing civilization out of the Silver Age. Every time you use the radio, you can thank Bonita.
Invention followed invention, and soon, the name Bonita Byers was known as well as that of Francene Stucky herself. Bonita's creative streak took root, and the rest is history.
