A huge thank you to EY for their ongoing support of talented NFTE alumni like Zainabou Thiam, who presented on the main stage at the EY Strategic Growth Forum in Palm Springs, California, in 2023! Zainabou captivated the audience with her story and the success of her business, Sunu Body—an online West African boutique that sells authentic African jewelry and skin care products ethically sourced from West African artisans. Her passion, poise, and expertise earned her a standing ovation, countless connections, and even a few investors.

EY’s commitment to nurturing the next generation of entrepreneurs was exemplified through this incredible opportunity, and we are so excited to see what’s next for Zainabou!

Mark your calendars; the next Strategic Growth Forum is scheduled for November 13-16, 2024.
