Stephen's story

I was born and raised in Nigeria, West Africa, in a community called Egbe with the nickname the Jerusalem of Nigeria because of how important christianity and worshiping was to the my small community. My family is one of the most humble worker and hardworking there and my family upbringing taught me from an early age that if I wanted something I'd have to work for it. We attended church 2 times a week and my spiritual muscles blended with what all that I was taught growing up to life upright and also know for a fact I can do anything I put my mind to and work hard towards it. I’ve always dream to be a business owner with all the facts that everyone in my family is a small business owner here and there which built my passion for business growing up and has inculcated the basics business and financial knowledges on me till date. I’m married to a beautiful American lady who’s a huge blessing and my main supporter. I’ve work at different level of jobs in America, from working as a front desk at a few hotels, a warehouse worker, and later joined the Texas department of criminal justice where i served as a correctional officer for a few years and resigned to start my own business. I’ve always wanted to set up a fashion business to cater for women and also sell a varieties products that serves women in the ages of 17-50. So i started Trybes Trends an e-commerce based fashion business that carries varieties of women’s accessories; handbags , sunglasses, jewelries and a whole lot of women products.
