Irene Sekyi Ntiako is the owner of Lady Victoria Designs, an Event Designing Production Company (Weddings, Anniversaries, Parties, etc), based in Maryland, USA. Irene is originally from Asankrangwa, Ghana, but moved to the United States when she turned 18, to become a Pharmacist. After acquiring her 1st degree and license, she went ahead to do her MBA, which validates her business presently. Her childhood dream was to become an Actress, but anybody raised in an African setting knows that such a dream has a 10/90 chance of being accepted by parents. Irene focused on reality, and she has done pretty well for herself. It all started when a friend paid her a visit in 2017, and complimented Irene on her home decor, asking if she was responsible for the exquisite interior designing. This compliment nudged Irene to decorate her very first wedding. In July 2017, she took a leap of faith, financially and mentally, and started Lady Victoria Designs. The name ‘Victoria’ stands as a tribute to Irene’s grandmother, who was a Queen and carried herself as such. “My most memorable childhood moment was being close to my grandmother, going with her to the farm. She was gracious, elegant, and she encouraged herself”, Irene says. Having a direct mentor in her grandmother carved the hardworking woman Irene has become. In just 2 years of business, Lady Victoria has covered numerous events, and has employed 15 staff. Just recently she got married, and the wedding was very tasteful. The future is looking bright for Lady Victoria as she and her team desire to travel more, creating memorable moments for clients. By God’s grace, “We now have our own inventory. We are considered a full production event company.” Irene took a risk that didn’t let her down but gave her peace. She said, “I have always been very
When asked what she has learned in her journey, she said, “You have to have a spirit of service. When you take care of people, people will take care of you. You have to seek to serve.
