This means so much. To be recognized by people I have been following for so long. I am so grateful for everyone’s contribution towards this industry. It’s difficult to have a breakthrough and this will be so helpful in my career. I am going to use the cash to pay off my student’s loans from last year and start my own branded label. – Sinazo Janda.
