Hey beautiful people!

How are you all doing?  I am doing great and still feeling the buzz from celebrating one year in business with my brand M.I.O-Prints. I truly believe the pictures in this post will justify and capture the community spirit, emotions and form of social movement reflected during the event. As a young entrepreneur, the past year has been nothing but fulfilling! Some of the key values I have developed include; patience, consistency, having the ability to ask for help and not seeing this as a sign of weakness, allowing myself to be vulnerable, building valuable relationships, developing a strong connection and having a passion for my business. Most importantly remaining creative while learning about the other skills needed to run a successful business.

M.I.O-Prints was created out of inspiration to inspire, to make an impact and to impact the lives of young Africans in Ireland to embrace and be proud of their roots while celebrating their beauty. In celebrating a year in business, I realised that M.I.O-Prints has been building a community all along. My initial plan was to create an event that would inspire young people, to be educative, fun and create an opportunity for people to meet like-minded people and to tap into their own strengths. I was shocked at how willing people were to help, from setting up the venue to participating in the programme of the day and just stepping out of their comfort zones. I felt truly blessed when people came up to me after telling how inspired they were by the event and how they felt it was time for them to start something too.

*I would like to also thank all the vendors and other brands that showcased their products.
