There’s a lot I seek to achieve with the initiative (IWC) . Women empowerment has surfaced and grown over the years but that doesn’t mean the work is done.

IWC is building women with value and promoting the #sheforshe movement. There’s nothing more beautiful than a woman confident, making waves and helping another woman up.
5. What are some of the Challenges You encountered on your Journey? Anything Sharable?
I’d say people have been one of my biggest challenges. Getting people to buy into your vision, working towards that vision to reach success together. Not everyone is capable of seeing what you see yet collaboration is necessary in the life of an entrepreneur. People make things happen therefore we all need to learn how to bring people in and work with.
6. In your line of business and from journey so far as an Entrepreneur, how would You define Failure?
Failure is when you Quit. There you have failed. Failure is bound to occur in the life of an entrepreneur and I am very happy I encountered several failures . Failure actually prepares you better only if you see it as an opportunity to come back better and stronger . I see them In the light as an opportunity to learn. As an entrepreneur one must get ready to fail. The road is never smooth. Most importantly picking yourself up, learning and moving forward is what makes you a success.

8. If you could turn back the hands of time, what would you have changed in your life? Any Regrets?
I have no regrets. I believe everything has a reason for happening and everything that has happened has shaped me into the woman I am and has brought me this far.
9. If you had the Opportunity/Platform to advice a full room of Aspiring Entrepreneurs, what would be your advice to them?
There’s so much I’d like to share with aspiring entrepreneurs out there. One thing for sure is they are absolutely capable! That vision they have, can be a reality only if they work at it. I have seen many capable young people like myself placing limits on themselves. With limitations you can not reach where you want to be. Also , I’d tell them to start now! The more you work on your dreams and visions the more you gain deeper understanding and clarity on them.
