Phillip Aubrey, 16, was all smiles recently, after winning the Urban Media Foundation’s (UMF) Junior Business Camp $100 drawing at the West Coast Expo on Aug. 14. Aubrey used laser-like focus to learn as much as possible about becoming an entrepreneur and real estate investor while attending the two-day camp.

He plans to start a one-stop advertising company for small businesses with his business partner Bernard Green, 17, whom he met at King Drew Medical Magnet High School.

Aubrey has long maintained a 4.0 gpa, is on the Leadership Council and Principal’s List, and is a member of Junior State of America. He plans to start a business while in high school and attend Columbia University.

“The Junior Business Camp opened my eyes to a lot of possibilities for me to make money, own property and to be successful,” said Aubrey. He is looking for mentors and investors to help him get started on the road to business ownership. If you would like to help, contact Phillip Aubrey at UMF at (323) 905-1325.
