Jenneh Mariam Williams is a designer entrepreneur and founder of Al-Mujalbaba, a Muslim women clothing company, which I has been running for over 35 years.
After 7 years of living and working in Operations and Audit Departments at the Central Bank of Liberia, in West Africa, I returned to my hometown of Queens, NY. I started out as a homemaker and later one of the small number of Muslim businesswomen.
As a pioneer in the industry when options for women and girls was extremely limited, I designed and supplied uniforms for Islamic schools in the tri-state area. When Muslim conferences gained popularity, I seized the opportunity and began selling products widely in the Muslim community, in person and online in 1990s.
I am currently in Central, NY, enjoying the company of family and learning about gardening.
