This has been an exciting six months for the Zandra team. We have grown our production, opened a new line of Lab workshops, and introduced fantastic new products. At the same time, we have built amazing relationships and created new ways to share our passion for inspiring teenpreneurs and empowering girls on the move. And with your support, we have become a brand that is recognized as ethical, socially aware and involved in our local community. It’s why we are so proud to announce these outstanding business accolades from two fantastic organizations:
Small Business Administration (SBA)

The Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award is presented to a company in recognition of their ingenuity, hard work, and dedication. Attributes which celebrate the company’s successful contribution to Buffalo’s economy and competitive reach. Zandra was one of 12 entrepreneurs selected from Buffalo’s 14 counties. We were delighted and humbled to receive this award. It signals that we are building a thriving business that will continue to offer the best in natural bath and body products for the educated and empowered girl on the move!
We were also nominated for the Black Enterprise Teenpreneur of the Year, together with several other young and inspiring CEOs. The Teenpreneur of the Year is a small business award specifically focused on businesses within the African American community. It recognizes the next generation of entrepreneurial innovators and value creators demonstrating growth and business leadership. It’s an important award for our community and for young businesses.

As someone who started her own business at a very young age, I am so proud of my personal journey and the love, commitment, and work of the entire Zandra team. It’s important to thank YOU too! Your support has really helped this girl on the move!!!
