My name is Nancy Ofoegbu and I am an American born Nigerian. I reside in Dallas TX. I'm a 4th year high school Science Inclusion teacher in Dallas. Outside of my 9- 5, I am the owner of my own fashion styling firm called GLO Styles (@glo.styles) which stands for Guiding the Looks of Others. Teacher by day, stylist by night is what I always say! I have styled artists and celebrities for events such as Afrimma (African Music Magazine Awards). I am also cast on the reality show called Real Naija Ladies of Dallas along with a few other amazing women! I am a promoter of self love who wants to empower and inspire others to be who God created them to be. My motto in life is “live the life that you want, or sit back and watch someone else do it. The choice is yours. It's so simple, but it all starts from knowing who you are within.”
How are you impacting your community?
I am a Youth Leader at my church. I took on this position to help teach the youth about God's word that will help plant a seed when they leave their homes and go off to college. It was important to me because I know what God has done in my life, so any chance I get to pour into our younger generation, I take it.
What advice would you give to someone looking to follow your path in the industry?
I would say to those who are trying to follow my path, be patient and don't allow anyone to put you in a box. Understand that entrepreneurship is not easy. There will be times where you will want to give up (Lord knows I still have the feeling), but if you remain consistent, you will surely reap the benefits. Lastly, stay focused and don't worry about those that are not supporting you. The right people that are meant to cross your path will make the journey worth it.
What separates you from your competitors?
The only person I am competing with is myself, so I don't see competitors. I see people who need to be uplifted and motivated. So that's who I am and what I do. Whether we are doing the same thing or not, I will always encourage you to be great and pour into you however I can. That is the same attitude I take on with clients. My goal is to not only make you look good on the outside, but feel good on the inside.
