By women, for women: Waist beads a fashion and status symbol
Caitlyn Kumi launched Miss EmpowHer, a brand she says promotes self-confidence, inclusion and empowerment of women of all shapes and shades, anywhere and everywhere.
during her junior year at UNC Chapel Hill Caitlin Comey launched Miss Empower a brand that promotes the self confidence, inclusion and empowerment of women of all shapes and shades anywhere and everywhere. It's hard being a woman we face so many challenges and obstacles and I really wanted to provide a brand that provided the resources to really help women become the best versions of themselves. So Miss Empower does everything from giving women a platform where they can tell their stories, providing advice and helping women find the strength to do anything on their website. You can also purchase their signature product, waist beads, waist beads originated in West africa including Ghana where Comey is from. All waist beads are hand made by women in Ghana. Traditionally the beads symbolized womanhood and strength. Comey says waist beads helped her when she was struggling with body insecurity and so she wanted to share this with others while educating them at the same time and I really, really like love that aspect because I think often times we live in a world where you know it's almost become that culture isn't meant to be shared and like where I'm from in Ghana we really take pride in sharing cultures. Comey says it was hard but she learned how to be successful by talking to people who have had great success in business and by reading books and case studies how many challenges being a young entrepreneur, being a woman being a woman of color um and I think the biggest obstacle I had to overcome wasn't actually financial, it was just like the self doubt, You can find missing power on just about every social media platform.
