Zaynah studied a multimedia course at The Global Academy: this is where her passion for tech grew. During Year 12 she set up her cupcake business @Zaynah's Bakes on Instagram (as a small school project) and accidentally gained a reach of 16,000 within 2 weeks. She now runs this as her side business with regular customers. She is 10 months through completing her Digital Marketing Apprenticeship with Facebook.
At the start of this year she was voted Vice President by her apprentice community to represent them and action the changes they want to see at WhiteHat. In May this year she was the youngest to win a BIMA award for being a young trailblazer in tech and has recently been nominated for The Asian Apprenticeship Awards for her work in advocating for apprenticeships and supporting young people of colour in this industry.
