HOWARD UNIVERSITY STUDENT LEADS NATIONAL YOUTH ENTREPRENEURSHIP MOVEMENT

October 31, 2006- Washington DC. As an in demand entrepreneurship speaker, the world needs to get ready for the new voice of the youth generation. Meet Quinn Conyers, a current graduate student at Howard University and recent founder of Speak2Society, a professional speaking firm specializing in entrepreneurship motivational speaking.

Quinn is currently touring the United States attending conferences, colleges, and youth organizations motivating, inspiring, and empowering students and young adults to choose entrepreneurship as the ultimate career choice

“If you do what you love you’ll never have to work another day in your life!” says Quinn, who believes that the only way to financial freedom, wealth, and independence is through entrepreneurship.

Quinn shares her business expertise through her interactive presentations and as the entrepreneurship editor of two popular businesses magazines. AFRO-Lutions Magazine Inc., and the Baltimore Times Small and Minority Business Magazine, are two publications Quinn highlights emerging and aspiring entrepreneurs that are among today’s top business savvy youth.

Quinn’s accomplishments do not stop there. The National Institute for Urban Entrepreneurship (NIUE) highlighted Quinn as the March 2006 Entrepreneur of the Month. Quinn has even caught the attention of the federal government by being named an Emerging Business Leader by the Minority Business Development Agency. In addition to that Quinn was chosen as an Emerging Minority Business Leader by the West Virginia High Technology Foundation where she earned a $1500 scholarship in a business boot camp for two weeks in Wheeling West Virginia this past summer. In both programs she placed second in a competitive business plan competition among students from all across the United States and Puerto Rico.

Believe it or not Quinn finds time to study and finish up her second degree while making history at Howard. Studying Mass Communications Media Studies with a specialization in Entrepreneurship, Quinn is currently writing a book on minority youth entrepreneurship in addition to writing her thesis on a similar topic. She has uniquely coupled her passion with an academic and entrepreneurial twist that is proving to be beneficial. The Capitol Speakers Club of Washington DC has also recognized Quinn’s exceptional leadership and entrepreneurship abilities and has awarded her the 2006-2007 Capital Speakers Club of Washington DC scholarship award in the amount of $4,000.

Originally from Lancaster Pennsylvania, Quinn has earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies with a minor in Spanish from West Chester University of PA. Her entrepreneurial journey will take her to several monumental conferences in the upcoming months. Quinn will be speaking at the Black College Expo, Collegiate Entrepreneurs Organization Conference in Chicago Illinois, and the 8th annual Youth College and Leadership Conference in Baltimore Maryland. Quinn welcomes the idea of helping students and young adults to turn their passion into a profit. She can be contacted directly for interviews and speaking engagements at info@Speak2Society.com.
