2009

Beading develops fine motor. Threading with beads is not only fabulous for developing essential fine-motor skills but can also be used as a way to introduce young children to a variety of mathematical concepts such as colours, patterns, shapes and counting. Lloyd Hodkinson was my first major client in 2009 for my beadwork section of my company, Abiah Expressions. He carried several pieces with him to the UK and sold them on my behalf marking the start of my entrepreneurship journey on a serious level. I made my first Kes 7,500 at the age 6 years old and I was fascinated. My parents allowed me to use a bit of that to spoil myself with candy at Yaya Centre - my dream mall at that time. But I also saved a significant amount and the entrepreneur in me was born in that year.
