Malala Yousafzai

Female Education Activist and Nobel Prize Winner

Malala Yousafzai

Female Education Activist and Nobel Prize Winner

Born in 1997, Malala Yousafzai grew up in the Swat Valley in Northern Pakistan with her parents and two brothers. From the age of 10, Malala has campaigned for the rights of girls to receive an education. In October 2012, the then 15-yearold Malala was shot by the Taliban while traveling home from school on the bus with her friends. Following the attack, Malala was flown to Birmingham to receive treatment at the specialist Queen Elizabeth hospital, and by March 2013 she had made a remarkable recovery and was well enough to return to school. Now studying at the University of Oxford, Malala continues to campaign for the right of every child to go to school. Since the attack, she has become internationally known for her courage in refusing to be silenced and continuing her fight for the right of everyone to receive an education.

Malala’s bravery and unwavering dedication to her cause has seen her honored throughout the world, including one of the world’s highest honors: the Nobel Peace Prize. She became the youngest recipient of the prestigious award in 2014, alongside Indian child rights campaigner Kailash Satyarthi. Following the outpouring of support that Malala received throughout her ordeal, she set up an international fund – the Malala Fund – which is dedicated to help promote education for girls throughout the world.

The Wealth Factory Inc.

Creating an algorithm for the stock market to win Goldman Sachs Portfolio Challenge, selling her first marketing plan to Prudential, becoming a founding employee of FINRA, authoring the first ever African American Financial Experience study, inventing the top financial literacy product in the world, and being named the “Next Steve Jobs” by Forbes – all by age 30, Angel Rich has earned the title Wealth Pioneer.

In 2009, Rich became a Global Market Research Analyst for Prudential Financial. While there she conducted over 70 financial behavior studies including the Obama’s Veterans Initiative. During her final year at Prudential, she helped the company’s Annuities division grow from #16 in Service to #4, helping the company save $6 billlion.

After leaving, Rich founded The Wealth Factory with a mission to provide equal access to financial literacy across the world. Today her company designs WealthyLife financial literacy education technology games, gaining world-class recognition for their first product, CreditStacker. It has been coined the best financial literacy product in the country by The White House, Department of Education, and JP Morgan Chase. Google named it one of the Top 10 Apps in the world of 2017.

In early 2017, Rich also released her first book – The History of the Black Dollar – with the foreword written by Dr. Maya Rockeymoore. The book takes readers on an economic journey through history to depict the major milestones, historic figures and upcoming leaders. Later that year, she was honored to be named Hamptonian of the Year and help found the Hampton University Entrepreneurship and Innovation Institute. She is also a proud member of the 2016 HBCU 30 Under 30, Hampton 40 Under 40 and Google Top 30 Black Female Founders.

In 2018, the United Nations named her one of the Top 100 Most Influential People in the African Diaspora and one of four Icons.

Nicolas Duvernois

Founder
Pur Vodka

An entrepreneur at heart, Nicolas Duvernois has always been full of ideas. After his first business endeavour went sour in 2006, he decided to found PUR Vodka. Since he knew absolutely nothing about the industry, it all began with a Google search for the word “vodka.” In order to finance the project, Mr. Duvernois worked as a hospital custodian by night and developed vodka by day for nearly four years until he won “Best Vodka in the World”.
