Being a mompreneur is a new journey because I never desired to be a business woman. I wanted my 9-5 job with my 4 weeks of vacation time so I could travel, return to a stable job, go home to my family and do it all over again.
Then I realized that there is a greater reason for my existence than sitting behind a desk meeting someone else’s bottomline. I believe my experiences, journey and lessons learned should be documented so others can benefit and be empowered. So I started writing…
I also believe that women are precious jewels so I inspire women to know their worth and never compromise their values. I challenge women by asking questions designed for introspection to ignite a desire to take an internal course of action. Out of this vision, Rose-Anne Uwague’s Beauty Evolution (RUBE) was birthed to dispel unrealistic standards of beauty and embrace one’s unique identity.
My heart aches for children who do not have access to basic human rights which I consider to be water, food and education. Out of this burning desire to make a change, RARE was born.
I am an American born Jamaican, I lived in Jamaica until I was 16 years old and then moved to New York to start college. I graduated with an AAS in Travel, Tourism and Hospitality, a Bachelor of Arts and Masters of Arts in Business Communications by the age of 21. A few months after graduating, I moved to China to teach English. I lived there for two years, had an amazing experience and then returned to New York. I speak Mandarin Chinese, understand some Spanish and butcher French. I love to laugh, eat and enjoy new adventures.
Christ is the central element of my life. I am a wife to the love of my life, Izoduwa Uwague and mommy to our sons Hadar (a Hebrew name for beauty and power) and Othniel (a Hebrew name for strength/lion of God); an avid globetrotter and a lover of food and culture.
