Client Interview - Abiari Nelson Echendu

Tags: None | Posted by | 0 Comments

Abiari Nelson Echedu was born in Nigeria and arrived in Newfoundland and Labrador in 2011 with a dream of starting her own clothing alteration and creation business. Shortly after her arrival, Abiari became aware of AXIS Career Services, and decided to seek assistance in order to make her dream a reality.


Since participating in the Business Development Support Services (BDSS) program at AXIS, Abiari has been able to gain a better understanding of the Canadian entrepreneurial landscape by attending various business workshops, receiving one-on-one consultations, and accessing the numerous networking opportunities, all made possible by AXIS.


While Abiari currently provides alteration services, she is looking to expand in the near future to include the sale of both traditional Nigerian clothing, as well as clothing that features a Nigerian/North American blend.



Abiari is feeling very positive about her future as an entrepreneur and now believes anything is possible. “If you have a goal, do not give up! Although it may be challenging, nothing worth having comes easy. Work hard and you will eventually see results.”
