Four of Our Founders on What Drives Them

What I want young women and girls to know is: You are powerful and your voice matters. You’re going to walk into many rooms in your life and career where you may be the only one who looks like you or who has had the experiences you’ve had. But you remember that when you are in those rooms, you are not alone. We are all in that room with you applauding you on. Cheering your voice. And just so proud of you. So you use that voice and be strong.” – Kamala Harris

PASSION & PURPOSE: We spoke to four of our Founders about what they feel passionate about and what drives them…

Emmy Scarterfield, Founder of Emmy London
“I am passionate about making women feel amazing; I believe that the route to true beauty is feeling comfortable and in turn, confident.“

Vicktesha Cunningham, Founder of Vtessia cosmetics
“I don’t want anyone to experience low confidence or diminished self worth due to hair loss. Hearing feedback from the women who have used our products, regrown their hair and had the confidence boost that comes with that really drives us to want to help more and more women.”

Vanessa Jacobs, Founder of The Restory

“A great customer experience.”

Irene Forte, Founder of Irene Forte Skincare

“I’m passionate about sharing a sustainable health mantra; this has led me to create my eponymous line. I’m also passionate about Sicily; with the people, the culture, the food and the breath-taking nature of the island. I wanted to do something that will help the Sicilian community. Last but not least, I love the people I work with; this is often the most rewarding part!”
