Two teenage brothers, Shane and Nigel Mushambi, who are just 12 and 13-years-old respectively, are already the founders and CEOs of their own Texas-based bakery called Two Bros. in the Kitchen.
The hardworking brothers are also students taking college-level classes and also find time to contribute to their communities. The two brothers have reportedly been always passionate about baking and only decided to start selling after winning a baking competition three consecutive times. Their passion turned into business when someone was willing to buy their winning piece.
They launched into business and have been successfully running the bakery business while still managing to study their books and also give back to their community. The young boys asides having a peculiar entrepreneurial spirit also find time to feed the homeless.
While speaking to ABC recently, the two brothers said that they give to the community because the community has done so much for them.
Aside from feeding their passion in baking, the brothers are also fond of studying math and science, Black Business reports.
Shane, who is in 8th grade, takes college-level math and engineering courses at Houston Community College. Nigel, who is a 7th-grader, takes pre-calculus course.
