Interview: Bejay Mulenga
By Jonathan Emmins | Founder
It’s been two years since Amplify first launched the ‘Young Blood’ series. Ahead of the release of Young Blood 2 we look back at what six of our young creatives featured thought then, and what they’ve been up to since…
Bejay Mulenga founded Supa Tuck aged 14, an enterprise programme teaching students how to run and operate their own tuck shops in school. Over three years they had reached over 5,000 young people in 100 schools. Now aged 20 he's the co–founder of Supa Academy, an experiential training company with clients such as Facebook, Barclays, River Island and EE.
Since 2016, Beejay has launched his iTunes podcast series ‘No More Tea’ – a personal development show helping young people connect the dots with new opportunities and fulfil their creative business potential.
In 2017 he was a panellist at the Evening Standard’s Young Progress Makers event at the Roundhouse, sitting alongside Mayor of London Sadiq Khan.
Heralded as ‘defining the future of work-based training’ by the Drum and tipped in ‘7 of London’s most inspiring young people who are changing the capital’ by the Evening Standard, Beejay’s Supa Network is continuing to provide unprecedented access to opportunities, connecting young ambitious talent with companies and brands.
