Hello dear readers,
For as long as I can remember Mondays have been a terrible day for me. Getting over the weekend and suddenly having to be a functioning professional for a good 8 hours is definitely not a simple task. Particularly if you spent the entire weekend watching too much TV, binge eating and for some, getting a little too intoxicated. Writing these mentorship articles every Monday has truly changed my attitude towards the Monday blues. I used to dread Mondays but now I look forward to them. There is no better feeling than the feeling I get sharing inspirational stories and motivational testimonies. And on top of that I also have been able to pick up great tips that I can apply to my career and lifestyle. What better way to start off my Mondays? It is my deepest hope and to a great extent belief, that you too benefit from these mentors. Or at the very least, have a deeper appreciation for what various career options have to offer.

Sheena Chiteri is my personal friend and I could not be more proud and excited to bring this interview to you. Sheena Frida Chiteri is the founder and director of House of Sheena C. I met Sheena back in high school when we were both 15 and full of dreams for the future. Sheena particularly was a dreamer. She was always adventurous. She loved fashion to her very core. I remember she would often draw designs of garments and show them to me. I had a lot of faith in her and as a good friend would encourage her and cheer her on as she drew and drew some more. Never in my life would I have dreamt that I would be writing an article about her work. I am thrilled. It’s a great honour for me to share her work with you. Sheena is a remarkable designer. In Nairobi Kenya, she’s already hit numerous media outlets and that is just the beginning.
Through the month we will be learning about Sheena Chiteri’s journey into the world of fashion, her challenges and her motivations. And of course, towards the end of the month, Sheena will also share some career tips with us. But today, we will simply begin with this introduction.
While waiting for next Monday’s article on this spectacular woman, go on and check out Sheena’s website and her Facebook fan page. You will not be disappointed. She shares a lot of helpful tips and tricks for fashion forward men and women which you do not want to miss.
Be sure to make today a fantastic Monday!
There is no better feeling than the love of family. This particular statement takes me back to my childhood when I would faithfully spend an hour each week watching a TV show by the name Seventh Heaven. It was an incredible educative show about family support and encouragement, that sort of thing. I absolutely loved it. But that’s besides the point.
Last week I made a trip back to my home country. Prior to that trip I knew I had missed everyone
back there and the lifestyle. But believe me I had not realized just how much until I arrived back home and was surrounded by beloved family and friends. Although I was only there for a week, it was worth it every last dime. Continue reading “The Gift of Family”
