PELHAM, NEW YORK, USA, November 15, 2019 — Two NY teen entrepreneurs lit up the Forbes 30 under 30 summit in Detroit through street wear and environmental passion!
Forbes supports Entrepreneurship, and proves it when Forbes8 and iCON partnered with two 16 year olds: Julia Corso and Vincent Testorf, co-founders of a brand new streetwear company based in NY. Part of GenZ, these two young entrepreneurs were the perfect match to link their inspiring generation with the new Forbes8’s interactive international platform.
Forbes 30 Under 30 in Detroit was on fire, according to Teen entrepreneurs GenZ Julia Corso (age 16) and Vincent Testorf (age 16), creators of street wear line dripeight (www.dripeight.com) which was presented during the NYFW last September.
The Teens partnered with Forbes8 and iCON, a new industry-player tapping into the creativity, intellect, and potential of Gen-Z. Dripeight is a world class streetwear line that gives a portion of all sales to help climate change. In their own words: “We want to make an impact in everyday life, and to connect with people who have the same sense of style, and fashion. Through our designs, we can express our worries about what’s happening to our planet. We donate 10 % of our profits to charities – it is our way to show our commitment”.
Dripeight designed a T-shirt showing the partnership of the brands during the “forbes under 30” summit in Detroit.
The Gen Z teens “T-shirt” was so dope (desirable), it made it into the hands of basketball legend Kevin Durant, rapper Quavo Huncho, and rapper 21 Savage.
The mammoth movement of Gen-Z catalyzed Dripeight and iCON’s initial meeting. iCON, a new industry-player tapping into the creativity, intellect and potential of Gen-Z, closes skills and data-gaps by harnessing their most precious asset: talent. iCON fuses creative content, social media and skills-based education to provide a new place to be inspired, to exchange ideas and build skills. iCON’s formidable partnership with Forbes8 grounds it as the go-to source for Gen-Z innovation, and a natural collaboration for Drip Eight.

KNIGHT OF WINERY EXCELLENCE
Gary Sze Kong, J.D., was born in Fujian, China. After graduating from middle school in Hong Kong, he immigrated to the United States alone at the age of 16. When he was 19, he purchased his first apartment building through a sheer reliance on his own efforts and hard work. In a strange new land, Mr. Kong first started as a handyman in an American restaurant. As a 16 year old, he understood that in order to live he had to integrate himself into this new environment – and to do that, he had to work harder and do more than others.
Sent from my iPhone
This outlook on life impacted how he would develop in his professional life, as he went on to attend the New York University School of Business, and then eventually graduate with a Bachelor of Laws, Master of Laws, and a Juris Doctor from the Law School of the Southwest International University.
Mr. Kong, armed with his professional training and expertise, began work in the life insurance industry. Eventually, through his own perseverance and personal determination, he was able to gain enough know-how in insurance marketing and law to become Assistant Solicitor, thereby becoming noticed by Avelino & Nitkewicz, LLP, a prominent law firm in New York City. It was in this capacity that Mr. Kong began to involve himself in a number of industries such as real estate, building materials, and storage. Through a series of shrewd investment home loans, he purchased properties all throughout the five boroughs of New York City, eventually forming Kong MGT, Inc., which to this day owns more than 90 percent market share of land titles in Flushing, New York.
The company currently has eight subsidiaries that own and manage more than twenty properties in New York, Texas, New Orleans, Nevada and other states – from commercial centers like hotels and malls to residential dwellings like condominiums and houses.
The drama, I never thought I would even be commenting on this until it hit my household. YES, this weekend is the long awaited Travis Scott concert at the Barclays in Brooklyn. I hear that Kylie Jenner is upset so Travis Scott canceled Buffalo concert and flew from NY back to LA. He even might be canceling his concert at the Barclays. Listen to me, Travis Scott, you worked to hard to get to this point, compartmentalize and get out there and give these kids a good show.
Let’s everyone calm down, we all know Tristen Thompson is a player, right now he does not want to be tied to one woman. Jordyn welcome to real life, maybe it’s time you stop living in Kylie’s guest house and get a place of your own. As for Khloe, your a single Mom, work on your business and give yourself a little time. As for Kylie & Jordan, I think you need to take a pause and redefine your friendship and time will heal. Travis Scott don’t get caught up keep making music.

I love this designer, Marnita Miller she is the creative genius behind the much-buzzed-about EFABB COLLECTION. Her designs are bold, yet practical. Her use of vibrant colors and unique fabrics create a classic, sophisticated, trendsetting style that is sure to get noticed. Her tailoring skill has gained her a following in the south.
As a high school graduate this Mississippi-native had high hopes of attending Parson School of Design in New York City but when tragedy struck her family years before, her dreams were met with much reluctance.
Yet, never giving up Marnita’s love for design bloomed into a reality through EFABB COLLECTION when finding her muse in her first granddaughter. It’s her baby, and every piece created is birthed from the heart of this designer with joy, love and endless hours of happiness. She infuses sophistication and wear-ability with hopes of making everyone wearing her designs feel absolutely FABulous….. the collection was so well received and highlighted at NYFW, she was asked to show in PARIS! The entire process, of creativity and pictures from her collection modeled by my daughter Julia Corso, @juliamariecorso showed in VOGUE. Ladies and gentlemen this is proof again to never to give up on your dream. Efabbcollection is more then clothing its a lifestyle.

Marnita’s journey has taken her to New York Fashion Week twice with Art Hearts Fashion and her popularity continues to grow amongst editors and consumers who savor the versatility of her designs.
Marnita’s desire is that her designs will develop styles that will assist in transitioning kids to adolescence teen years. The clothing line range from kids size 6-12 and teen adolescents sizes 2-8.
Marnita introduced her boys line at Art Hearts Fashions in New York in 2018 and it was well received. This boys line also include designs that are gender neutral.

Rome will set anyone’s hearts aflutter, for all the right reasons. We all have a perfect vision of what our Roman Holiday will be like, but I have to say ours was better then we could have dreamed thanks to ORBITZ https://www.orbitz.com at The Westin Excelsior Rome @westinexcelsiorrome, one of the city’s top five-star hotels. Standing proud off Via Veneto, Rome’s grandest street, this “Grand Dame” offers a noble setting, world-class accommodations and amenities, and its place in the pop culture firmament: Fellini’s “La Dolce Vita” was filmed here in 1960 and figures prominently into the movie’s storyline. Special thanks to Maddalena Ciociola @marriott international for sharing history and hospitality to my family after a long flight. The suite allowed us all to feel the grandness of the hotel.
History has never been more alive in the Eternal City, which offers a feast for all your senses: sights (Colosseum! Ruins! The Vatican!), sounds (Vespas gliding through the streets), scents (the aroma Via Veneto), touch (fur at Fendi, rocambolesco!) and tastes (the best Italian food in all Italy). It’s the perfect get away for any American looking to get away from a crazed routine back home. Whether you want some unplug time with the kids or some romantic alone time with your husband, Rome is a place where anything is possible. Add in a luxurious suite at @westinexcelsiorrome and travel by @orbitz and you’ll have the makings for an even better Roman Holiday.
Nothing gets kids, err teenagers, more excited than a touch of Hollywood. Federico Fellini’s “La Dolce Vita” was filmed throughout Rome, including @westinexcelsiorrome. The iconic movie follows a gossip writer over seven days of looking for “the suite life” throughout the city.
Who doesn’t want a “Roman Holiday?” The 1953 romantic comedy is a classic, made more famous by scenes of Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck riding around town on a Vespa. You can, too, at @westinexcelsiorrome. The five-star hotel not only has the motorbikes to rent, it has THE same scooters used in the movie. It’s all about location, location, location, and @westinexcelsiorrome has that in spades – located off Rome’s tony Via Veneto, home to Café de Paris and Harry’s Bar, the hotel is nestled between the Spanish Steps and the Borghese Gardens & Gallery. Oh, and it’s near the best shopping in Rome, including its native son Valentino. One of Conde Nast Traveler’s “Gold List Hotels,” @westinexcelsiorrome offers guests 28 rooms and 35 classic suites with Italian-style furniture and accents, marble tubs, luxury linens, jaw-dropping views and delicious gastronomy at Doney. The great part about Italy is that you can eat and drink to your heart's content and lose weight. Maybe it's the walking, but I think its the smaller portions and fresh ingredients.
Eat, drink and be merry … you can do all three, and then some at @westinexcelsiorrome. Whether it’s Mediterranean fare at Doney, located off the trendy Via Veneto; Café Doney, a bold, black and red adorned restaurant where the city’s fashion, beauty, and business gather; or ORVM, an elegant piano bar great for aperitifs and midnight nightcaps, you won’t go home hungry.
How suite it is! @westinexcelsiorrome boasts four suite styles luxurious enough to attract the world’s VIPS– Villa La Cupola, a multi-level home with living room and breath-taking frescoed dome; The Imperial, overlooking Via Veneto and the United States Embassy, has fresco decorated ceilings and two royal bedrooms; the Via Veneto category, with stunning views of the legendary Via Vittorio Veneto, are corner suites with circular marble-floored living rooms; and the Grandluxe, which come decorated in supple carpets, velvet curtains andBohemian chandeliers.
Kudos to @orbitz for putting together our amazing journey. Rest, romance, rejuvenation, renewal = Rome. Bellissimo! Traveling with your kids is not easy, especially when they’re teenagers, but our trip to Rome hit all the right notes. We savored the beauty, sights, monuments, and food, while mom and dad got some fantastic alone time when we were at the hotel.
