Zara Northover, OLY

“Faith, strength, resilience – these are the pillars of my identity. As an Olympian, Founder of Moving in Faith, LLC a global lifestyle empowerment brand, Speaker, Champion for Detroit Phoenix Center and Brand Ambassador for Athlete Foundry. I, Zara Northover am not just a dreamer, but an advocate, an owner, supporter, lover, friend, family member, athlete and inspiration. I refuse to conform to societal norms that urge us to blend in; instead, I stand tall and stand out.

From humble beginnings as a girl born to Jamaican parents in the United States, I’ve defied expectations in every aspect of my life. I’ve proudly represented my country as an Olympic athlete and achieved remarkable success in the financial industry, distinguishing myself as one of the most accomplished mortgage bankers.

But beyond personal accolades, I’ve used my platform to uplift others, advocating for their dreams with unwavering dedication. This commitment has earned me past nominations for prestigious awards like Hall of Fame inductions, Best of Detroit’s Community Activist and Crain’s 40 under 40 et al.

I wear the cape of support as I navigate life with faith, strength, and resilience. I am unapologetically a catalyst for change, both in the present and the future. My mission is to empower others on their journey to become their best selves, curating spaces of belonging that become the equitably inclusive norm.”
