Before joining Facebook, Zaynah studied at The Global Academy where her passion for tech grew. Previously she attended a grammar school, an environment she could not thrive in. Even though facing societal and family pressure, she took a risk and decided to build a new path for herself. She set up her own business using Instagram called Zaynah’s Bakes, a home-sale cupcake business where she reached 16,000 people within the first 2 weeks. Zaynah also built a strong portfolio through various work experience and internships. She is now working in the marketing team at Facebook where she is responsible for managing regional campaigns which run across Facebook & Instagram. Currently she is working on a program which supports young BAME women in Tech & Apprenticeships, which she wishes to launch in the near future.
Given the chance, I’d tell… my younger self: “You’re doing great sweetie”.
