NFTE Baltimore Alumnae Asia and Zoey

Zoey W., Deja au Vintage and Asia M., Fortuante!

At the beginning of the 2012-2013 school year, Asia, Zoey, and their classmates sat down in what they thought was going to be another finance class.  Instead they were introduced to the NFTE program. Neither Asia nor Zoey imagined that a few months later, they would earn recognition both inside and outside of Baltimore for their business plans.  Both students competed at the National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge and were recognized by the Mayor’s Office on Minority and Women-Owned Business Development.

NFTE Baltimore has started the school year off with a unique partnership with two Departments within the Baltimore City Mayor’s Office. Our engagement with these city offices brings a new prominence to our work in Baltimore City and validates the importance of our work across the Baltimore Metro business community! It is these types of relationships that help NFTE bring sustainable change to the economic landscape of Baltimore City through our work with Baltimore City students.
