Meet our student entrepreneur of the week:
My name is Oni Abosede Victoria, a student of the University of Ibadan; studying Counseling and human development studies. I own an online perfume store.
What’s the inspiration behind starting a business as a student?
I’ve always loved being an independent person, and that was what inspired me
How has starting your own business while still in school impacted you, both positive and negative?
Hmmm no negative sides for now.
How do you balance school and business?
It is balanced, I work based on schedule.
How supportive are your parents?
How did you build a customer base when you first started?
I move from rooms to rooms to advertise and I also make my friends repost on their social media handles.
What advice do you have for upcoming student entrepreneurs?
Just do it and don’t be too hard on yourself, it is a gradual process.
