[Radiant Stars with Pheobe]: Interviewed the CEO of Amaleen design @amaleenonline
SO PLEASE CAN YOU INTRODUCE YOURSELF?
My name is obiegbu chiamaka paul and Currently a student of Nasarawa state university keffi.
WOW BEING A STUDENT & AN ENTREPRENEUR MUST BE THE MAKINGS OF A DELIGENT PERSON, SO WHAT STATE ARE YOU FROM?
She smiles, I am from Anambra state.
GREAT. SO NOW LET'S GET TO BUSINESS. HOW DID AMALEEN START? DID YOU JUST FIND YOURSELF SEWING OR YOU HAVE ALWAYS HAD A PASSION FOR IT? ILLUMINATE US
Okay, I always had a passion for it. In my junior secondary school I was one of d best when it comes to sewing in home economics and secondary school same in my senior secondary school in home management. So during one break in school which was a strike I had the opportunity to master the art.
WOW! WHAT AN EARLY START YOU HAD, AND IN CASE YOU GUYS DON'T KNOW, I AM ALSO A STUDENT AND I DO REMEMBER THAT STRIKE AND HOW IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST TIMES IN MY CAREER TOO. MANY GO THROUGH LIFE NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO WITH WHAT THEY HAVE BUT ITS GREAT TO SEE THAT YOU ARE BUILDING ON YOUR TALENT.
Thank you ma.
I FIND THIS INTERESTING BECAUSE WHILE OTHERS WERE WAITING AND WASTING THEIR TIME, SOME WISE ONES USED THAT TIME TO BUILD THEIR SKILLS. SO WHAT KIND OF DRESSES DO YOU MAKE? JUST FOR FEMALES OR BOTH?
All kind, I just try my possible best to see what looks better on you whether male or female then go with it.
WOW! YOU ARE A BORN DESIGNER I MUST SAY, LIKE PEOPLE SAY, YOU ARE A NATURAL WHEN IT COMES TO SEWING. I HAVE SEEN YOUR WORK AND THEY ARE FABULOUS. SO WHERE DO YOU SEE AMALEEN IN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS?
Thank you ma, I see it big! God has plans for me so I don't want to limit it with words.

SO I KNOW YOU ARE A BUSY WOMAN BUT I ALSO BELIEVE IT IS EVERY WOMAN'S DREAM TO HAVE HER OWN FAMILY. WHAT IS YOUR IDEA OF WHO YOUR IDEAL MAN SHOULD BE EXCEPT YOU HAVE FOUND HIM ALREADY? (smiles)
Hmm! He should have a fear of God and purpose.
HMM! I LOVE THAT INTELLIGENT ANSWER. PURPOSE IT IS MA. SO CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT SOME PEOPLE WHO HAVE WHO HAVE MOTIVATED YOU AND CHALLENGED YOU TO BE A BETTER WOMAN BOth IN YOUR CAREER AND EVEN AS A SPIRITUAL WOMAN?
My pastor Jessy Danladi and his wife Dorathy Danladi, My dad and mum chief Mr and Mrs Gregory Obiegbu, Genevive clothing line and Ejiro Tafari a designer as well.
WOW! AWESOME PEOPLE. THERE IS NOTHING LIKE HAVING THE RIGHT PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE. SO AMAKA WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR YOUTHS OUT THERE.
My advice is for them to mingle with the right people, People of purpose and have the fear of God because I believe that was what brought me to this stage.
THAT IS A VERY SOUND ADVICE THERE, SO CAN YOU SHARE A LITTLE ABOUT THE CHALLENGES YOU FACED EARIER IN YOUR CAREER AND HOW YOU WORKED IT OUT.
Getting people to trust my work and no enough material in use. I was able to over come the trust part by making impact on those around me first and it eventually rubbed off on others. The materials issue was overcome with time.
THAT IS GREAT TO KNOW BECAUSE NO MATTER THE CHALLENGES ONE IS FACED WITH, IT IS JUST A FUNCTION OF TIME BEFORE YOU BE A MASTER OVER IT AND OVERCOME. THIS HAS BEEN SUCH AN AMAZING TIME WITH YOU AND I BELIEVE THE BEST OF YOU IS YET TO COME. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING MY GUEST, I HOPE YOU ENJOYED YOURSELF TOO
