Meet the Maker
Greetings Everyone! My name is Jovan and I am twenty-six years old. I am honored to be born and raised in the great and resilient city of New Orleans Louisiana. I am a loving daughter, a loyal little sister, and the coolest aunt. After graduating high school, I immediately enrolled in college and my primary career goal was to become a pediatric nurse, because I loved helping others and I especially loved working with children.
As time went by, things did not go according to initial plans. In retrospect, I knew becoming a nurse was not a passion of mine and truthfully speaking, I only wanted to make my loved ones happy and proud about my career of choice. As years passed by, I had various different jobs in Retail before entering the Hospitality industry for about two years, where I learned and executed giving exceptional customer service to all walks of life from all around the world. During those two years of being in the hospitality industry, I began brainstorming on how I can fulfill my ideas about turning my hobby of making candles into a small business.
My passion and interest develop after years of purchasing candles from well known candle shops, and I began to wonder if could create my own line of candles that people would love to burn in their homes. After concluding extensive research, I was blessed to be able to launch my small candle company in September of 2020, all while sufficing an unfortunate and unprecedented active pandemic.
Now, I excitedly look forward to continue on working diligently and consistently to enhance my brand. I have been graciously inspired by my city, its culture, and the people around me who motivate me to follow my dreams. Starting my candle company gives me ammunition to inspire other young black entrepreneur's, just as myself, that anything is possible when you have faith and a passion. My ultimate goal is to continue to think creatively and work hard as an entrepreneur; making my dreams become reality and learn from every single experience along the way to pass retained knowledge down to future generations.
