Why fashion designing? 
"Growing up, I was always very interested in dressing well so I would watch a lot of fashion shows, and I was inspired to start sketching even when I didn’t know how to sew .I find inspiration in almost everything – places, music, books, people. I became a designer because I love creating beautiful things".

What were the challenges you faced starting up?
"My biggest challenges were time, money, competition on price, management skills and availability of fabric and Design copy cats.Fashion is a business where you need money in every step, to make quality designs, to market it and promote it."

Progress so far?
"The level of progress has been fantastic. As I have full support from my parent and siblings. They have been the best gift from God to me. I have learned a lot personally being an entrepreneur especially in embracing my uniqueness"

What are your prospects?
"I want to expand my business and enroll in a fashion school after my BSc, then register my fashion house. I believe when I'm professionally trained, I'll be the best thing that's ever happened to the fashion industry *smiles*"

What advice do you have for other students like you?

"There is a lot of scope and opportunities for aspiring designers today. You have to be passionate, driven and always remember that there is no shortcut to success. Creativity is a work in progress, so continue to enhance it and never set boundaries or limit yourself. People will try to talk you down especially when you make mistakes. Always remember that it is okay to make mistakes"
