Ogo loves creating with textiles, she believes we can change how handmade textiles is perceived and appreciated locally and internationally thus the passion and love for the journey.
I am an optimist, a believer of positivity and active thinking. Throughout my years of living with Vitiligo, so often have I seen the damage that low self-esteem, negativity, insecurity and anxiety can do to people. That is where I come in, of course. I strive to encourage and build green self-confidence of individuals living with beyond Vitiligo now to Skin conditions and Visible differences, especially women and girls to live happily and confidently. Uninfluenced by negative thinking, societal demand, societal expectations, fear of the unknown and instead shifting the focus to self-acceptance & self-love (positive self-image) and being grateful for what we have.
I am an aspiring writer, writing about self-love & self-acceptance, Positive self-image, Skin conditions and Appearance related concerns, Natural living and reach out to the vulnerable who are worn out by the nuances of society and inspire and motivate them to the possibility of living positively and confidently.
