Chioma was that child that will send you hiding your clothes and wrappers far away from her reach for the fear that she will tear them in shreds out of the zeal of designing and making clothes. Her first skirt was made at the age of twelve. 

"Nobody taught me to sew, nobody close to me sews, I didn't even know it was a 6 pieces skirt I sewed till I finally went to a fashion school," She says with an air of humour. 

"I also made bags and a pair of slippers from an old Jean material that happened to be my old skirt. My mum marveled at the thought of Jean slippers then but now we see Jean slippers everywhere." She continues. 

Chioma Vanessa who prefers to go by the alias 'God's favourite daughter' is a graduate of the Federal University of Technology Owerri, an entrepreneur and the present CEO of Nessa Design and Stitches (NDS). A young Fashion and Designing outfit that not only makes great outfits but also runs mini fashion tutorials.

Her motivation stems out from mentoring and coaching others. However, she does not leave out the fact that improving or make something new, completing a difficult project and seeing it through the end, meeting set targets, finding a way to solve a problem all spur her motivation.

"My biggest motivation is to see people run to Jesus in total surrender through the power of influence or success, people need to know that success through God is real and heaven, at last, is the height of true success here. This quote 'success has many friends' just started making a lot more of sense to me. Research has it that people ordinarily would travel far, pay the heavy bill, damn all the consequences just to hear a successful or influential person speak whether or not you make any sense."

 I want to get to that height that when I cough, everyone wants to pay attention to who coughed."

She goes further to reveal that consistency is what takes people to places beyond imagination.

"This will take you places unaware, don't dare give up, be courageous, you'll have sleepless nights, you'll feel worried and afraid. It's okay do it with fear anyway there'll be stories to share afterwards, just don't let me hear you gave up."

One major challenge she has faced in her entrepreneurial journey is getting competent hands that can reproduce you in your absence. This is because of the get-rich-quick syndrome that has bitten deeply into the younger generation. Most people have obviously lost the ability to be patient work towards goals and get results. The world has subscribed to 'the end justifies the means.'

Heads up, people! 

Walking into a shop to purchase an item does not look appealing to me anymore. This is one of my decisions for the new year being that if something is not worth it then there is no point buying it especially trying to impress another fellow. 

I have chosen to stick to buying experiences rather 'things.' One of my observation is that experiences cannot be stolen or compromised. They stick like your gum sap sticks to a tree. 

So maybe before you buy that expensive Emporio Armani wristwatch or Jimmy Choo shoes, it might be imperative to checkmate if there are experiences that same amout can buy you. Don't get me wrong, it is as clear as crystal that you need to shop for clothings, food, phones or luxury from time to time but bear in mind that your happiness can't be tied to any item. That vibe you get is nothing but a fleeting one . 

“One of the enemies of  happiness is adaptation,” Thomas Gilovich reveals. “We buy things to make us happy, and we succeed. B…


I watched Fisayo click away on his camera between flashes of light. It was at an event about promoting Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's).

I checked some boxes after our interaction. He is industrious, a supporter of social good and very efficient. Call me a stalker of amazing young people and you won't be far from the truth.
