F E A T U R E F R I D A Y
It started at a young age where Femida found a love to create.
She loved to hand craft, make customized journals and quickly found a passion for sewing.
She is a natural born d r e a m e r and has always strived to live her best life.
Imani Collective would not be the same without her and are extremely thankful for her dedication to the women of the program.
Femida, what are you most proud of?
There are many things that I am proud of in my life, but I love that I got the opportunity to be educated and go to college. During this time, I was able to perfect my skills in sewing and grow in my passion for business and entrepreneurship. I am also really proud to be the wife to my husband George. I got to marry my best friend and am so thankful for him!
How did you find out about Imani Collective?
Imani Collective was a dream job. I met Jenny in 2013 after a night of karaoke with mutual friends. Then in early 2015, Jenny invited me for coffee and explained her vision for the growth of the Imani Collective. She wanted me to be a part of creating change in these womens lives and offered me a position to be the country director. She gave me the opportunity to be involved with economic empowerment. It was an answer to many prayers and a dream come true for me.
What do you love about working for Imani Collective?
I love the challenge of Imani Collective! Every day is a little bit different and every woman has her own story that I get to be a part of. I also have grown in my sewing skills, people skills, production/management skills. I also get to see transformation of our women first hand and I absolutely love witnessing beautiful change almost daily in our workshops.
What is your passion and desires?
My desire is to see our women grow in their confidence, strength and skills. I want them to become the best versions of themselves, their family and their community.
What is your personal theme/word for the year, and why?
My word this year is CHANGE. There have been a lot of changes in my life this year and I am learning to embrace it. I am daily reminded that God is in control and change is good.
Change is good.
