Ilford mum-of-two ready for business world thanks to Prince’s funding
A 24-year-old Ilford entrepreneur is setting out to conquer the business world after receiving funding and mentorship from The Prince’s Trust foundation.
Mum-of-two Sebrina Bea, of Vicarage Lane, Newbury Park, is the founder and director of Miracle Bump, which sells a cream for women to prevent stretch marks during pregnancy.
She developed her own products after suffering with extremely sensitive skin during her pregnancies with her girls, aged three years old and eight months.
She signed for her loan funding of �4,000 from the Trust last month after convincing a panel of her business plan’s merits.
She said: “Whenever a friend or family member would fall pregnant I would make them creams to use when it dawned on me I could start a business.

“I’m getting the stock in the next couple of weeks.”
