After the passing of her father, which led to financial hardships at home, Nadége had to walk away from continuing her education in order to help take care of her mother and four siblings. A local seamstress took Nadége under her wing and taught her everything she knows about sewing. At the age of 27, she continues to work tirelessly to hone her craft. Seeing people admire and enjoy garments that she has created brings her great joy and satisfaction. Because of her employment with Francis+Benedict, not only is Nadége making a fair wage that helps her support her family, but she is also gaining the freedom and independence to dream big dreams for her future.
