Niamani Knight

Youth Entrepreneur of the Year Award

Title: CEO
Company: S.T.R.E.A.M. Kids Expo ™

Niamani Knight founded her non-profit organization S.T.R.E.A.M. Kids Expo ™ (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts, Manufacturing), when she was thirteen years old as a result of being selected to participate in Lancaster, Ca, first Young Entrepreneurs Academy Program (YEA). Purposing in her heart to reach her peers and her successors, Niamani rallied the support first from her parents to believe in her vision, then that of large and small businesses alike, she built S.T.R.E.A.M. Kids Expo ™ into an organization with a national reach and with global capabilities. She is quite humbled to know that her cold call beginnings have led to developing relationships with top companies like Lockheed Martin, Amazon, PPG, Microsoft and many others. Her organization’s unique approach provides a creative balance of collaboration with local communities and the businesses within them. Now in her Senior Year of High School, Niamani is looking forward to impacting school age youths all over the world.

Since 2015, over 10 thousand students have been directly impacted and millions being reached through digital and print media sources and interviews. Allowing even those as young as kindergarteners to explore opportunities through hands-on interactions all while gaining confidence to own their results. Niamani, although based in California, has established S.T.R.E.A.M. Kids Expo ™ as an intricate part of surrounding communities near Atlanta, with Riverdale, Ga, currently being the standing hosting city. Niamani continues to have grassroot conversations with the youths, the communities and business owners to develop a win win experience. This helps to diminish the gap between public, private and home school education and the skills and camaraderie needed for business success in the 21st Century. S.T.R.E.A.M. Kids Expo ™ provides a path for all ages to be a success in any field of interest whether as employees or entrepreneurs because she believes working for yourself or someone else owners desire results. She is excited for the continual support and commitment you and others give which permits her organization to be successful.
