HOW AND WHEN DID YOUR JOURNEY BEGIN?
During my junior secondary school days, my mum advised me to learn something, and initially, I wanted to be a hairstylist because naturally, I know how to make hair.
So my intention was to become better in that field but my mum chose fashion designing because she knew I was very picky with clothes and that’s how I learnt it and I’m glad I chose that path and obeyed her.
