Teen Wins with Vegan Bakery

New York teen wins entrepreneurship challenge with her vegan bakery.

Seventeen-year-old Nia Froome of Valley Stream, NY won the 2010 Oppenheimer Funds and Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge with her business, Mamma Nia’s Vegan Bakery. Froome beat 28 other finalists, winning the opportunity to meet President Obama and bringing home a prize of $10,000, a portion of which she will donate to breast-cancer research. Froome said that she started creating vegan recipes when her parents gave up meat due to her mother’s breast cancer diagnosis 10 years ago. The teen now bakes and delivers organic, vegan goodies, including cinnamon rolls, cupcakes, and oatmeal cookies with customer-ordered add-ins. NFTE is an international non-profit that works to support entrepreneurship in low-income areas.
