Southeast Student Named Global Young Entrepreneur

Each spring the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship hosts young entrepreneurs from around the world for an evening of awards, celebration, and networking. Destiny Davis, a sophomore pursuing a major in mass communication, advertising option, and a minor in business administration, was one of 11 students in the nation named a Global Young Entrepreneur for her business, DestinTees Custom Tees & Apparel.

The honorees traveled to Manhattan for an expert-led workshop on marketing and growing their business, followed by an evening awards reception and the opportunity to showcase and sell their products and services.

Davis founded DestinTees in 2012 when she was 14 years old, making T-shirts using just an X-Acto knife, an iron and fabric paint. Today, she works her magic from her home in Ferguson, Missouri, with a screen printing station in her garage, and a vinyl and sublimation station set up in her basement. She manages her business all while being a full-time student at Southeast.
