Sebastian's self-made attitude has resulted in a few accolades. In March, she earned the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce SCORE Small Business of the Year award. SCORE Chester and Delaware Counties, which provides free professional advice for business entrepreneurs such as Sebastian, presented her with a similar award in 2019.

"My grandfather (John) was a SCORE volunteer. When I was really little I remember going with him to his office and sitting there in the background while he met with aspiring entrepreneurs to help them start their business," she said. "He was the inspiration. He's not with me anymore, but every time I got an award from SCORE, I thought he would be so proud of me. Just making that choice to go out on my own and try to build this thing from nothing, the fact that I have so many people in my corner is the best feeling ever. That's the reason why I've been successful. It's all the people that have helped me along the way, from coaches to all the parents who have trusted me to work with their girls, the people from SCORE, and my friends and family who have always believed me. It's a great feeling."
