My greatest achievement is definitely Sheba, I never in my life thought I could start the first black female organic cotton sanitary brands in Africa.

Love inspires me – EVERYTHING I do comes out of a place of love. Sheba, is about the love I have for women and wanting to make their plight easier.

I will push further boundaries by continuing to be innovative and serving my purpose to make women’s lives easier. However, continental expansion is the biggest way I plan to push boundaries in my field. Sheba will be making strides in this way.

I want to be known as a businesswoman rather than an entrepreneur, that empowers other black women.

To my 16 year old self, baby girl, self love and acceptance comes first always. But self love means loving those around you. So love them freely and abundantly, accept their flaws as they accept yours.
