21 year old Ashley Wanjiru is a close definition to living one’s dreams. House of Legacy saw to it that the beautiful and inspiring story of her journey was captured. Designing, as she claims came to her as a child;designing dresses for her dolls from papers and waste materials. All through high school she made designs from bed sheets, grass etc. The Mass Media and Communication graduate claims she works a lot on her drawings, drafts and sewing.
Her target market is not limited as she pretty much works with anyone who loves art and creations. In as much as she gets all the support from her parent, she believes her next design will be the best. Her major challenge, however, comes in in having to do all the drafts, cuts and sewing single handed but also believes is well able to handle the job.
Her advise to parents who might be uptight about career choices is to let the children be what they want to be and follow their passions. In five years she wants to own a clothing line and looks up to Sewe Kenya , in her own words, ‘Everything he does is my goals’ She has worked in major gigs and handles prominent people like Noti Flow.
