We had the good fortune of connecting with Regine Jillea Dawson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Regine Jillea, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
I pursued an artistic career because I figured if I’m going to be doing something for the rest of my life, I should love it! I have always been into clothing, beauty, and art, so choosing the entrepreneurial route was destined for me. I was told before that YOU have to choose entrepreneurship, it’s not going to choose you. I had to step out on faith and just start and see where God took me.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am a designer. Right now, I designer clothing, mainly tops and t-shirts. What sets me apart is that I have fortitude even during a global pandemic. This is not the best time to start a business, but despite all, I still decided to do it. It is a privilege to manage a start up and I’m very thankful that I have the focus in today’s age to follow through with my dreams. I have a degree in Retail Entrepreneurship from Florida State University and I believe that my course load prepared me very well for the things that come up in the daily life of an entrepreneur. I want the world to know that Regine has something great to bring to the table. I want to do everything I can to excel in my life and help others excel in there’s.

My mother deserves a shoutout because she has always supported my creativity no matter how unique. I knew that God gave me the mom I have in order for me to have creative freedom so young. She has always given me a listening ear and kind words to help me carry on.
