Tell me about yourself…My name is Ifeyinwa Onwualu and I’m the CEO & Founder of Madison Gems (www.madisongems.com); a fashion jewelry & accessories online boutique that caters to men, women and children. I’m Afro-Jamerican, a product of a Nigerian and a Jamaican parent, nevertheless, I reside in Queens, New York. Becoming an entrepreneur was always a part of my blueprint when growing up. However, I was interested in so many different things that I had no idea which avenue I would choose first. Considering, I’ve always loved accessorizing, moreover, I loved accessorizing on a budget. As a result, I got a business license so that my sisters and I could cash-in on wholesale prices. I always imagined that I would own a boutique one day, however, I decided to attain my education first with a bachelors degree in International Business and an MBA in Hospitality & Tourism Management. Consequently, I couldn’t find gainful employment in my field, so I decided to pursue my passion for merchandising and put my business license to use by starting my website.
