Zanab Farooq, a 17-year-old YEA! graduate from Arlington, Virginia, auditioned for the upcoming season of ABC’s Shark Tank! Zanab is the Founder and CEO of Z14 Cases, a company which makes custom cell phone cases. She developed Z14 Cases in 2015 through the YEA! class hosted by the Arlington Chamber of Commerce.
Zanab will soon find whether or not she will be selected to compete on the upcoming season of Shark Tank. “It was a very nerve-racking experience as I was the only high school student participating.”
The pressure was intense, but pitching in front of potential investors is nothing new for Zanab, or any YEA! students. Since graduating from the Young Entrepreneurs Academy, Zanab has continued to maintain valuable connections made through the program while building her business. Best of luck Zanab!
