Through the lens of lifestyle, fashion and travel, itsNkenge provides light-hearted media that sparks self-confidence and creativity in women everywhere.
I was born and raised in New York City. Being raised by my mother, a driven fashion tailor and designer, I was always encouraged to be self-sufficient creatively and professionally. I found interests in graphic design at the age of 11, where I taught myself how to create widgets and profile layouts for MySpace. At 14, I attended high school in Toronto, Canada and found a love for English, video editing and business. Thereafter, I returned to New York City to pursue a business career at FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology), where I received my Bachelors Degree in Advertising and Marketing and developed a passion for fashion, travel and content creation.
With the help of my degree and continuous self-teachings in photography and blogging for three years and counting, I remained self-sufficient through each milestone, whilst attending school and working part-time. I also had the opportunity to work as a model and content creator with many professional brands including Balmain, Who What Wear, and Forever 21. If I’m not working at my part-time job or dancing (as sometimes shown on my Instagram), I’m finding inspiration and challenging my creativity.
My brand identity and photography style bridges between lifestyle, self-love and confidence. I love to make people smile and find their true selves.
