I wasn’t born with a passion for beauty. I was born, however, amid pure beauty. As a child growing up in Lagos, Nigeria, I saw firsthand the elegance and dignity of womanhood. The beauty of it all - from the Shea producers’ work ethic and perfectionist craftsmanship to the sacrificial role of motherhood - it all symbolized beauty to me. The kind that didn’t age, but actually became better with time. As an adult, I became passionate about affecting that - the legacy of womanhood, through beauty - but on a global scale.
