Obocho Peters is a 11-year old CEO from Brooklyn, NY gaining borough and worldwide notoriety.   At the tender age of 9, Obocho became the Founder/CEO of I Am Obocho LLC and recently opened up a physical store location in Brooklyn on his 11th birthday called “Obocho’s Closet”.  In support of the community, Obocho takes a portion of his profits and invests it back into the community with FREE Financial Literacy Seminars. The community in return reciprocates the love by giving Obocho an influx of clothes/shoes donations to stock his store.  

Obocho has received awards for his community activism from both Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams who rewarded Obocho the Hero of May 2019 for his first seminar and Councilmember Farah Louis for his second seminar. Seeing the heartfelt passion Obocho has for making a difference, the GoFundMe organization came on board in support of Obocho’s vision to open his Brick and Mortar Store by deeming him the Hero of October 2019 in order to raise the funds needed to open by his 11th birthday.
