We didn’t all grow up with a golden spoon in our mouths . Tai Mau fought to get where she is today .She was born in Lagos state Nigeria to parents from Edo state in the eastern part of Nigeria , also grew up there and graduated university but as you all know the Nigerian story and disease ,you graduate but no jobs waiting for you.
Tai says that’s why she decided to travel abroad , she saved up money and with the help of her dear mother she was able to secure a student visa with which she travelled to Germany for more studies. There she majored in nursing while doing all sorts of menial jobs to make ends meet . Remember Tai is already a university graduate from back home and she could have given up with no job in Nigeria but she didn’t . Only those who have travelled and lived abroad would understand the struggle of living in a foreign country with no family especially when you don’t understand a word of what anyone is saying . Being a university graduate already didn’t stop her from forging on so first ,she had to learn the language,that she did with determination and the absolute believe that education is freedom after all her mother was a formal commissional in Edo state .Now she speaks more than four languages fluently ,including of cause home language too.
The young lady did her best to survive and survive she did . Today Tai owns her own fashion business which she calls Tai’s Signature on Facebook .
I was blessed to interview her via Facebook messenger and had a lot of depth into the person she is .
Tai says her inspiration for her fashion business , she got from her biological mother and her Aunty who she lived with for a very significant period in her life .
Everyone has a story and Tai has one . She ended up starting her own business, which involves the selling of quality clothing shoes bags and fashion accessories for the today’s woman. Tai doesn’t believe in doing the fake and general , she believes it’s better to do the authentic and unique pieces . You buy from her boutique , you buy quality and you will be sure no one else will pop up at your party looking like your twinny .
On love , yessss Tai is happily married with two adorable children . She worked hard to get where she is today , struggled through school , then travelled to find her dream . She is still working hard to keep it going. I asked Tai when her third child would come ,she laughed and said that would be a surprise
Tai’s Favorite Quote is
” To be successful is to be different, you can’t be like anyone else .”
Tai advice to everyone is don’t stop working to achieve your dreams , set your goals and then work hard to achieve each and everyone of them one step at a time .
