Founded in November 2014, birthed in a time where Nkechi (the Founder) was finally able to express the love she had for the skin she was in. Not wanting to be alone in this glory, she decided to create a platform that she could use to shine light on other amazing humans who have influenced her in a positive way because of their love for the skin they are in.
EIMS began with one community event, she promoted, and 38 women showed up and she never looked back. She organized another event April 2015, and the audience size grew, which bolstered her confidence that she was onto something meaningful and sustainable.
Coming out of the April event, she joined forces with her best friend, Miss Jully Black, a Canadian Icon, and they have been co-partnering on Women empowerment events ever since. The strength of Jully’s brand, and their unique friendship helped to further build the brand and subsequent events were sold out in the 100’s.
EIMS's main objective is to grow into a brand that is a catalyst for real change, transformation, and empowerment. Getting people to think in a way that is empowering creates a rippling effect that has an impact on the world.
Beyond the empowerment events, Nkechi is now building EIMS Inc., as a Personal Leadership Development company. Personal Leadership and Inclusion & Diversity are areas of focus for her. She is marrying this love and creating a personal leadership development formula for humans everywhere that when plugged into will build the type of character that can withstand any life shifts and still operate from a place of clarity.
