  • Los Angeles-Long Beach, CA (1888PressRelease) October 16, 2015 - MeriEducation Founder & CEO Joan Nguyen was recently named a Finalist in the Young Female Entrepreneur category in the 12th Annual StevieŽ Awards for Women in Business. As an honoree of these prestigious awards, Nguyen is being recognized for her achievements with MeriEducation - a full-service tutoring, test prep, and admissions consulting company headquartered in Pasadena. The privately owned company currently boasts 4 centers in Southern California with over 50 full-time and part-time employees.

    At the age of 21 with only $3,000 of her personal savings, Nguyen started MeriEducation with a vision to create an alternative to the cookie-cutter educational programs that existed. With her hard work and dedication, MeriEducation has become a truly unique learning experience that continues to overturn what families know of tutoring through its emphasis on quality, innovation, effectiveness, and passion. Nguyen strives to demonstrate that any young individual, especially a young woman, can start a business with practically nothing and succeed. Today, MeriEducation is still 100% self-financed with no debt-financing or angel investors.

    The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees and the companies they run - worldwide. The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world's premier business awards.

    More than 1,400 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 90 categories. Finalists were selected by more than 120 business professionals from around the world during the preliminary judging. Category winners will be announced during a gala event at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on Friday, November 13.

    "High-achieving women entrepreneurs, organizations, and executives all over the world are an inspiration to girls and women who dream of starting and growing a business," said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of the Stevie Awards.
