My name is Joy Eneghalu and I am the founder of the iModelAfrica and Creative iMAN Platform. Before now, I used to be a young girl who felt she was on the right path to impacting lives and gaining financial freedom. At least, that was all I wanted. I started my business in 2011 (my first fashion show and it was a hit). I was pretty young and just got out of a heart-shattering relationship (teenage problems). I swam in fame and empty pockets though I was ready to give wealth another chance. The second event was great but not as beautiful as the first edition.
I was on the verge of organizing the third one in 2013 when everything came crashing. My team-mates were all gone, I had no sponsors, I was broke, I was everything not lovely that period. My mind was in its negative state though I tried to keep it strong. Since the event couldn’t hold, I decided to try something else.

To stay busy, I launched a thrift shopping business, became an affiliate for a T-shirt brand, but nothing was working. With shame in my eyes, I went home and went away from the Internet for about a year.

I started developing myself in ways I could. I became open minded. I thought I had it right and so, I got back again to launch “my next big idea”. I started an online competition for models because the goal was to cut cost. That didn’t go down well. I concentrated on blogging for models, launched my bag line, launched a tee shirt line, launched an online radio, almost launched a pap business, almost launched a photo stock website. ALL THESE DIDN’T WORK!

But I knew I had to get it right. I knew I had to go back to the drawing table. I had to tell myself THE HARD TRUTH.

In June 2016, everything became clear. I was more determined than ever. I was determined to take it one step at a time and doing things the right way! Everything began to pay off. I started tasting a glimpse of my dream life. My dream life is a life where I can travel, connect with a lot of people, learn on the go, do business from anywhere in the world and be financially free! And guess what? There is NO TURNING BACK.

I intend to use this space to inspire lots of young women out there. If you are a young lady in business who is trying to survive or facing challenges in any area of your life, then this is for you. If you are a young female entrepreneur seeking support in your business, then this is for you. YOU SHOULD LIVE DOING WHAT YOU LOVE SO IT DOESN’T FEEL LIKE A CURSE.

I want to help you gain clarity, just like I did. I did it alone and it took me 5 years to figure my life. It took me 5 years to study and understand business processes that can reward me financially. I want to help you get the support of other women so you don’t feel like you are alone in the struggle. I want to help you connect with other women so that we can build a strong support system. We can build our own army. We can be our own cheerleaders. We can make the world stand and stare at us because WE ARE AWESOME!

IModelAfrica is a lifestyle blog. This blog started in 2015 as a way of inspiring young minds especially young creative women. It started as a model blog and later metamorphosed into a space to empower young women to use their creativity to be the best they can be and explore all that is in them. This blog is for career-driven creative women who want to live a beautiful and fulfilled life. I write for young women who are ready to dare to make their dreams come true.

When I am not blogging or working on my business, I love to read, listen to music, think of the next phase to conquer or wander on Pinterest.
