Today we’d like to introduce you to Morrinah Egharevba.
Hi Morrinah, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I am the founder and creator of Her Millennial Closet. Initially, my journey began as lifestyle and millennial marriage blogger. My goal was to share my journey as a millennial wife and in hope to bring positivity to millennial marriages.
I realized that our generation has a negative concept of marriage based on what we have seen in our society. Not all millennials were fortunate like me to have both parents in the home while growing up let alone being married for 34 years plus. So, when I got married, I wanted to share some light and positivity on millennial marriage hence I created the blog “A Millennial Wife’s Tale”.
Looking back now, I just love the saying that goes “Man plan, God disposes”. The reason this statement relates to me so well is because A Millennial Wife’s Tale was short-lived due to my love for fashion. Sometimes all we must do is start. The beginning of the journey might be different, the middle might also be different but that does not mean the end won’t be the outcome it was meant to be.
Few months into blogging as a lifestyle and millennial marriage blogger, I noticed that my audience was more attracted to what I was wearing in all my blogpost more than what I was sharing in terms of the blog content. They would complement my outfits and went as far as referring to me as a fashion blogger when they share my content.
Honestly speaking, that bothered me for a very long time. I was “upset” that the message I was sharing was not being delivered correctly. Maybe it’s because I was overdressed, therefore I told myself not to post my photos during the blogpost in that way people would only read the message.
That did not work either because I would not control my love for putting outfits together. After months of fighting this, complaining to my family and friends, fasting and praying, I decided to make the switch to fashion blogging. This is when “Her Millennial Closet” was born. The name was given to me through praying. I prayed to God one evening and it was like a clear voice that says, “Millennial Closet” Then I personally added “her” in the title because I wanted it to be a little more personalized.
Although I am only nine months into blogging, this has been the most fulfilling work I have ever done in my life. Unlike millennial marriage blogger, style/fashion blogging suits me more. Creating content comes effortlessly and my audience engages more.
I am following the work God wants me to do by elevating one closet at a time and building one confidence at a time.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
In the beginning, I used to tell my husband I felt like a baby dolphin that was placed in the middle of the ocean with some many big sharks. I felt as though I was constantly drowning with no help.
I knew nothing of the content creation world and let alone what being an influencer meant. Maybe I should have done more research before I started but again, I was way too excited about my initial idea, so I told myself that I was going to be okay.
Looking back now, I’m glad for all the hardships and emotions I faced. They have helped me to learn and build my brand. I had no help within the industry because I knew no one who was a blogger. All my friends were rooting for me, but they themselves knew little to none about blogging.
But my husband shows up for me daily. When I complained of how much I was drowning, he would ask me “do you like creating content?” and my answer will always be yes, and his response will always be “remember nothing good comes easy, better days are ahead. Keep pushing my wife, you got this. I am here if you need me”.
He sure has always been there. If I have no one to take pictures of me, he will take them for me. If I need someone to vet a look I created, he will gladly help although he rather not, lol.
All of this to say, God lead me down a path that he is seeing me through. Based on my journey, I am always willing to assist new content creators that come in my DM asking me questions because I know exactly how they feel and what they are going through.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I hold a bachelor’s degree in social work and Mental Health and also a master’s degree in project management. I graduated from Morgan State university both times. For 9-5, I work as a Business Analyst for a consulting firm in the DMV area. My blog, Her Millennial Closet helps women elevate their look and overall confidence. I believe in the power of fashion. The right outfit can change any mood from bad to good or good to bad. Depending on what you’re wearing can have a significant impact on your day. If my content can help my audience in the slightest way possible by recreating an outfit from my feed, then I have done my job.
Have you learned any interesting or important lessons due to the Covid-19 Crisis?
Yes, and it’s that my faith grew more in God. I started my business in the middle of COVID-19 and it’s still growing.
