The Journey So far – Female founder’s Stories


In celebration of Women’s History Month, March 21, our Co-Founder Maame ran a weekly IG Live talk series called The Journey So Far, where she spoke to various female founders, highlighting how they started their journeys in their respected fields and what their plans are moving forward.


We chose these women because they are all MamaSia customers and have similar core values to ours. They are all ambitious amazing women who have a strong focus on empowerment whether it be through sustainability, charity and community led businesses, through music or just being an inspiration to many aspiring female entrepreneurs, these women are impacting their industries and bringing women to the forefront.


You can watch “The Journey So Far” on our IGTV Channel @mamasiabeauty or on our YouTube Channel @mamasiabeauty. Look out for more videos in the series in April.

Oyella Odeng – Founder of GoBare , Charity,


Arriving in the UK fleeing a civil war at the tender age of eight, Oyella found herself living a totally different life to the one she was born into. After working as a Job coach, she had a natural desire to help those people in her country that had been oppressed due to the effects of war.

Oyella, was born and partially raised in Uganda, as an adult she realised that the 20 year civil war effected many people and wanted to give back to the country of her birth.  She realised that many lived below the poverty line and many children normally had to walk for miles without adequate footwear. She decided to set up sponsored walks across the UK and raise money to provide shoes for the under privileged in her native home, Uganda.
