Talent Academy CEO Wins 40 Under 40 African Award

Nakuru’s Joan Musumba, founder of Little Big Talent, has recently been announced as the winner of the 40 Under 40 African award under the Environment and Climate Sustainability category. The young environmentalist has been making great strides in advocating for environmental conservation and educating children from a young age on environmental conservation through her talent development school and Climate Action program.

Ms. Musumba’s efforts have been recognized through her annual Little Mr and Miss Environment Kenya pageantry, a franchise run by Children in Climate Action, which she oversees. This is her second time being nominated for the Iconic 40 under 40 African awards, as she participated in the competition last year in Accra, Ghana.

This year, she emerged victorious and beat out competitors from other African countries such as Mauritius, Gambia, Eritrea, and South Africa. “I am so humbled and honored for this noble recognition and I dedicate it to God, my country Kenya, my team who work tirelessly to achieve impact in the society and the people we serve,” said Ms. Musumba in an Instagram post.

The recognition by Fortyu40Africa has given her renewed motivation to continue her great work in serving humanity. Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua also congratulated the young entrepreneur from Nakuru for her commendable job in advocating for environmental conservation and educating the younger generation on environmental issues.

Joan Musumba’s achievement is a testament to the importance of environmental conservation and the need for education from a young age. Her efforts have not only impacted the children under her care, but also inspired national recognition of her work.
