Founder and CEO of Youth Financial Education Non-Profit Organization Recognized For Remarkable Contributions

Sabrina Lamb is New York’s Dream Achiever,’ WME Live’s Together And State Farm® Announce

State Farm and WME Live’s Together, announce Sabrina Lamb as New York’s ‘Dream Achiever’ honoree.

Lamb is the founding chief executive officer of the World of Money, a leading provider of financial education to youth in the Tri-State Area.

After conducting some research on the subject, Lamb found the answer to her question was a resounding “no”. So, after affirming the detrimental effects of this knowledge gap, she leveraged her network as a media personality and love of empowering children to create World of Money.

Since 2005, Lamb has been empowering youth by providing them an engaged, professional quality financial education. These accomplishments and her continued work inspiring youth is why Lamb was honored on the Together stage as New York’s “Dream Achiever.

“A ‘Dream Achiever’ is a woman who rejected the status quo and refocused her life to reflect her passion,” shared Michelle Hare from State Farm Marketing. “She is a woman who takes chances, follows her heart and believes in empowering others.”

Together is a six-city tour convening women across generations and backgrounds for six nights of storytelling focused on creating community, well-being, purpose and action. State Farm is a primary sponsor of the tour and will honor a Dream Achiever at each stop along the Together tour.

“The Together tour is about bringing women together to celebrate love, build community and take action. Through storytelling, Together aims to help people feel less alone in their lives,” said Jennifer Rudolph Walsh, who leads WME’s Literary Division and is producing the tour. “Our work with State Farm to honor Dream Achievers is the ultimate culmination of the Together mission. Sabrina Lamb is inspiring and courageous -- a true example of what it means to live in your purpose and follow your dreams.”

More than 2,000 women gathered at BAM Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn for friendship, empowerment, and action. Core speakers included Glennon Doyle Melton, Seane Corn, Dr. Jacqui Lewis and Valarie Kaur, with celebrity guest appearances from Abby Wambach and Geena Rocero.

“Together is a movement bringing new ideas, influencers, and organizations together,” shared Hare. “Sabrina is the epitome of a Dream Achiever. She personifies what we hope for all the women attending the Together tour.”
