Best advice you've ever been given

Falling down is not failure. Failure is the refusal to stand right back up!

Personal Passions, Charities, Hobbies:

I'm very passionate about "clean and green beauty". I'm also very passionate about entrepreneurship! I'm partnered with Girls Inc., an organization that inspires young women to be strong, smart and bold. I currently mentor for their Operation Smart STEM programming. It's so important to me that young girls understand that we are just as great at math and science as boys! I would love to be instrumental in bringing more women of our future to STEM jobs. My girlfriends are literally my chosen family. I enjoy "circling" with them (the art of active listening, manifesting, and supporting one another on a regular basis in a tipi or meditation center. I also love hiking, Body By Simone, LEKFit, Spinning and yoga. Another thing I love to do is mentor other young women, designers, entrepreneurs and college age dreamers!

What do you want to achieve in 2018, personally and professionally?

My personal and brand goals are to continue to grow my network of incredible women around the globe. My hope is that Nyakio will grow to be a global full scale lifestyle brand that is committed to empowering women to create their own opportunities around the world.

Name one thing that scares the shit out of you:


What is one thing that would be game-changing for your business right now?

Brand awareness! Getting the opportunity to share Nyakio the brand and myself with a wider audience!

If you could tell your 20 year old self one thing, what would it be?

Go easy on yourself. This is your time for adventure and exploration. Don't take yourself so seriously!

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I would love to be a part of Hey Mama because I'm so inspired by the connectivity and support of other women, especially mothers who are committed to inspiring one another to be change makers for the world. I always say that "when a group of women, come together and support one another, magical things can happen."

That is what Hey Mama represents to me and I would be so honored to be a member and contributor to the environment and support of women I would be so lucky to meet!

Thank you for your consideration!

All my best, Nyakio
