Her love for cosmetics started when she would help put make-up on her sister’s face. She was very young, unconscious of the fact that what she took to be absolute fun would turn out to be her American Dream. The US-based young Gambian has now developed interest and skills in cosmetics that she has set up her own cosmetic line. Meet Rohey Adewale Ceesay and in her own words.
My name is Rohey Adewale Ceesay. I am the founder and owner of Reminisce by Ro. I am originally from Gambia, Africa but resident in Michigan, USA. My interest in cosmetic products started when I used to watch my older sister get all dolled up and sometimes she let me play in her makeup. I started doing my own makeup which made me love makeup.
I always wanted to start up my own cosmetic line and I am finally making my dreams come true. Reminisce means indulge in enjoyable recollection of past events. All my work will be inspired by all the positive moments I encountered during my life time. When I buy make up products, I look at quality and most makeup products with good quality are very expensive, which some people can’t afford. My products are designed to be affordable with the combination of good quality. I want to make women feel comfortable and be confident in their own skin. I believe in women power and [that] we surly run the world.
My mission is to inspire other young Gambians to follow their dreams and stop putting a limit on the things they can do. I don’t hear a lot of Gambian owned products which is one of the things that inspired me even more to launch a cosmetic line. During the past few years, I have followed successful cosmetic business owners and also did numerous researches on how to improve these products.
On July 20th, I launched my cosmetic line. I currently have lipsticks in stock and I am launching Reminisce Lashes on August 20th. I will continue to add more products as time goes on. I plan on opening a shop in The Gambia soon to make it easier for Gambians to get access to my products. I ship worldwide.
