Cinneah El-Amin (pronounced: sin-ee-ah el-ah-meen) is the creator of Flynanced, a debt-free travel and financial freedom digital platform where she inspires her community members to fly financially free. At only 26, Cinneah has traveled to 28 countries across 6 continents and is often asked how she affords to travel. Realizing that many of her millennial peers were struggling with managing their money and yearning to travel without financial barriers, she created Flynanced to answer that call. Since 2020, Flynanced has grown into a sought-after personal finance & lifestyle brand with over 22,000 community members.
In her own finances, Cinneah became debt-free in 2020 after paying off over $23,000 of credit card debt, personal loan, and student loan debt in 12 months. She is on track to reach her first big financial independence / retire early (FI/RE) milestone of $100K invested in 2021. Her story has been featured in media publications like Bankrate and Black Enterprise.
With a background in financial services and business management, Cinneah brings tangible and accessible personal finance knowledge to her community. Since becoming debt-free, Cinneah has relocated abroad and is currently living and working remotely in Tulum, Mexico. She is a graduate of Barnard College of Columbia University and Wake Forest University School of Business.
