I love UMOJA's swimwear because we always have the perfect bikini for any occasion. I personally wear all the styles myself before we even put them on the website to make sure they are perfect and true to description.
About UMOJA Boutique
I was 18 years old and in my first year at University of San Diego when I decided to quit my side job. I had been juggling a full load of classes, a part time job, volunteering and upholding a college freshman social life. Constantly stressed, I took the last money in my bank account and bought the domain umojaboutique.com. It had always been my dream to be an entrepreneur and I was tired of waiting to obtain a degree to do it. I had a passion for swimwear, because as a new college student, I saw left & right people struggling with body dysmorphia. I wanted to create a brand that will make every body type feel as perfect as it is. My passion is to create swimwear that makes everyone feel comfortable and excited to put on their bikini.
The Following Steps
Getting 30,000 website visitors and 800 orders in the first week of launch is not normal. It is rare. My most utilized marketing resource is social media. I got my product out there by sending swimsuits to influencers and promoters. People loved them and it spread like wildfire. Creating brand awareness and love for my products means more to me than anything.
I still continue to juggle being a full time college student and growing UMOJA. I personally handle most of the advertising and promoting of UMOJA, always trying to add my personal touch and passion to everything I do. UMOJA is growing larger everyday and has insane potential, I can’t wait to see where my baby goes and what’s next for it. This is my dream and I am so thankful for all the continuous love and support. Thank you.
