About EIMS

Empowered in My Skin Inc. is a catalyst for change, transformation, and empowerment. Getting people to think in a way that is empowering is the lead domino that has an impact on the world.

Founded in November 2014, birthed in a time where Nkechi (the Founder) was finally able to express the love she had for the skin she was in. Not wanting to be alone in this glory, she decided to create a platform that she could use to shine light on other amazing humans who have influenced her in a positive way because of their love for the skin they are in.

EIMS began with one community event, she promoted, and 38 women showed up and she never looked back.

EIMS’s main objective is to grow into a brand that is a catalyst for real change, transformation, and empowerment. Getting people to think in a way that is empowering creates a rippling effect that has an impact on the world.

Beyond the empowerment events, Nkechi is now building EIMS Inc., as a Personal Leadership Development company. Personal Leadership and Inclusion & Diversity are areas of focus for her. She is marrying this love and creating a personal leadership development formula for humans everywhere that when plugged into will build the type of character that can withstand any life shifts and still operate from a place of clarity.

"To help one billion people think in a way that is empowering."
