Today we’d like to introduce you to Delisa Flowers.
Delisa, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
The name “Jungle Gemz” was originally used for a class assignment during my last semester of college. I graduated with my BFA in Fashion Design in 2014.
After completing college, I had the hardest time finding a job in the fashion industry. So, as of January 2016, I took it upon myself to fully bring “Jungle Gemz Apparel” to existence. Randomly, might I add!! I remember being at work and getting the urge to write down ideas for a T-shirt. 6 years later, I’m a proud business owner of a streetwear clothing brand.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
To be honest with you, my journey has not been smooth sailing. I’m constantly reminding myself that patience is a virtue and that success doesn’t happen overnight. Running a business is a continuous marathon. My biggest struggles have been financially, mentally, and emotionally. I’m not always going to get things right the first time around. Best believe I’ll find a different approach & keep going.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I currently work as a Customer Experience Associate. Customer Service has been my forte for 13+ years. I pride myself on communication & problem-solving. I’m also a firm believer of “treating people how you want to be treated.”
This year just feels different. I’m really excited about it. I can’t wait to create some new designs for Jungle Gemz, continue making creative content, & travel more. I’m also getting married later on this year!!!
