Fostering change and opportunity through the scope of business and writing.
Yumna is relentless in her passion for business, creative writing, and advocating for social issues that affect underrepresented communities. She was recognized as one of three national high-school winners across the KIPP Foundation for her letter submission to Vice President Kamala Harris about religious discrimination and has successfully published two poems in books by Words To Power within the Denver Metropolitan region. As a Social Media Ambassador, Yumna created e-newsletters and social media posts for the Girls Inc. of Metro Denver network of more than 10,000 stakeholders that prioritized sharing the stories of women and young girls from diverse backgrounds. Yumna continued her impact in her school community where she served as the Director of Communications for the Student Board of Education (SBOE). There, she developed effective communications, marketing, and branding strategies that aligned with SBOE’s mission. Her ultimate goal is to one day blend her passion for creative writing and equity with business, by creating a company that promotes unified support and understanding in minority neighborhoods. As of now, Yumna continues to work hard to study and give back to others within the community.
