What inspired the start of “Mygani LLC “?
Because of my background in graphic design, I knew I wanted to use my creativity to have a positive impact on society. In 2015 I launched our product line featuring custom illustrations of black women with naturally curly hair. Our product line consists of handbags, travel bags, backpacks, yoga mats, and mugs. I want the images on our products to convey a positive message and empower women and girls of color.
What has been the biggest challenge of running a brand like ” Mygani LLC”?
My biggest challenge is being a solo entrepreneur and trying to find the balance between family and growing my business.
How does “Mygani LLC ” impact the community?
Mygani’s mission is to create platforms and products that empower women of color. We have a unique collaboration with a local tv segment to highlight positive stories of black moms and women-owned businesses in the community. Many times we hear the negative stories about the black community, this is a way to make a positive impact on our community.

Mygani’s signature Curls and Convo annual event is designed to instill the value of self-confidence in women and girls of color regardless of their skin complexion or hair texture.
