Flair Eke, 24, from West London, was working in retail and completing her university degree when she first heard about The Prince’s Trust. She was unsure what she wanted to do after graduating and wanted help and guidance to work out her next steps.
At university, she felt a lot of pressure due to the high expectation of her family and herself. Her parents have a science background and had always wanted her to go into the same field. She also knew she wanted to be an entrepreneur which drove her to take a business degree at the University of West London.
Flair contacted The Prince’s Trust and completed a Get into Technology programme with AWS, a Get Started with Photography course and has now started the Explore Enterprise Course looking at starting her own business.
“I was always curious about technology and wanted to advance my career after graduating. I completed the course after 3months and got my first Certificate in tech.”
She was offered a job after the Get into Technology programme however due to the Covid-19 pandemic the role was deferred.
The Enterprise course is helping Flair gain all the skills she needs to make her business a success. She can get the support she needs and advice from our experienced team.
“I have always had ideas about potential start-ups but never went through with any. After the get into tech course, I knew I wanted to do something along the lines of tech and helping others. My business plan is still in the development stages and I plan to take all the necessary step to make sure that the business is well thought out before going live.”
Flair plans to continue to work on her business with the hope to launch it when it ready and hopes to get a job in the tech industry.
