A few years ago I began to dream about owning a personal care product so I began to engage a couple of people in the Industry. I wanted to know everything I could about bath and body products, what sells, what doesn't, what gaps exist and where I could begin from.
Today, I'm grateful for the great insights I received from all those I spoke with. After all the discussions, and years of back and forth discussions into the wee hours of the morning, I found my space. I wanted to create something that was authentic, beautiful and African in its mould Natural and most importantly, Globally competitive.
What drives my passion is a need to see an African, home made brand that will rise beyond a cottage shop and retail in international personal care shops.
This finally, led to the birth of Keyara Organics, a dream that has been a long time coming, we want to play in the Global playground.
I'm eternally grateful to God for answering my numerous questions and giving me the courage to keep on keeping on. To my family and friends for never giving up on me, and for constantly asking me what a journalist was doing trying to be a manufacturer and better still, helping me find the answers to questions about life and balance.
To my Inner circle, thank you for listening to my dreamy stories. To Imani, my lovely daughter who believes she is employed by Keyara Organics, thank you for the love and the critics and thank you for being Keyara's biggest fan.
For my mentors, you challenge me to be a better person everyday. Thank you, you have held my hand through it all, even when I was too afraid to tell you what I was unto.You help me awake my inner giant.
And to life, for seeing me fail, and with that, teaching me to rise up, be stronger, more ambitious and grateful.
To Imani, my lovely daughter who may be too young to understand why mum loves to do so many things, yet loves all that I do, and believes she is employed by Keyara Organics, thank you so much for the love and the critics and thank you for being Keyara's biggest fan. You inspire me to be a better mum everyday.
