OCHIJE SHARON NKECHI: a 17 years old influencer every brand should look out to!!!

Ochije Sharon Nkechi, Is a 17 years old, student of Baze University studying electrical electronics engineering.
She’s an influencer, a model and entrepreneur.
HOW IT ALL STARTED?
"Modeling came first, I used to model for my brother’s fashion house and I fell in love with it, and now it’s a part of me."
I was motivated to become an influencer by beautiful young girls I see here on Instagram making a name for themselves and a means of livelihood. They truly inspire me❤️
As for being an entrepreneur, I’m about to launch my brand Kee’s Empire, I’ve always wanted a business in my name and I’m finally doing it. I’m excited to see it through, I know there’ll be challenges but I’m ready to face them head on.
As a teenager with these experiences already, what opportunity do you think you had that exposed you to starting all the above?
There wasn’t a lot of opportunity, but I knew what I wanted and I set goals for myself and worked hard to get it. I invested In myself, I saved up and got myself a phone, and other things I knew would be important, I invested in myself. In essence, you are your only limitation, you can make an opportunity out of the slightest situation.
So what are the Up and down side of being an influencer?
My major dilemma is finding a balance between my education and influencing.
Being a young influencer What are you doing differently from older influencers?
And do you think younger influencers pose any threat on the older ones?
"Setting new trends, redefining influencing, giving power to the young and, showing that age is not a barrier.
Yes we do, we’re taking over so everyone should watch out !"
Personally, fashion is an expression so I pick my daily fits based on mood and occasion
