Whitney Madueke is a lawyer, who was admitted as a Barrister in the High Court of Nigeria. But after studying law, she realised that law wasn’t her passion. What she really loved was fashion and beauty. So she packed up her bags and moved to the New York to pursue her passion.
Making the transition wasn’t easy though – she’s had to work hard to create her brand, and there were times she even thought about giving up on her dream. But she’s persisted, and now has partnerships with some major fashion brands.
She started what has become a hugely successful YouTube channel where she shares tips on hair and makeup.
She’s also decided to go back to school to study fashion, because her ultimate goal is to be a fashion designer.
