Norriah is the epitome of black girl magic
Norriah Kimberly Holder is the twelve year old entrepreneur from Saint Louis, Missouri and the owner of NK Natural Lip Balm. I have watched Norriah over the last couple of years and I absolutely love her drive and enthusiasm. I’m personally inspired by her positivity and her strong work ethic. I’m certain others are inspired by her as well!
So tell us about NK Natural Lip Balms!
I create all-natural products such as lip balms, lip scrubs, and hand sanitizers. I also have accessories such as key rings, hair scrunchies, and now croc charms.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN BUSINESS?
I HAVE BEEN IN BUSINESS FOR FOUR YEARS SINCE i WAS NINE YEARS OLD.
TELL US WHAT MAKES YOUR BUSINESS UNIQUE.
MY BUSINESS IS UNIQUE BECAUSE ALL OF MY PRODUCTS ARE HANDCRAFTED BY ME. ALSO, A PORTION OF MY PROCEEDS GO TOWARDS MY ANNUAL TOY DRIVE. SO I’M NOT IN BUSINESS JUST FOR MYSELF BUT TO HELP OTHERS AS WELL.
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?
I got started initially by wanting to by my own plane ticket. I love to travel. My mom, my big sister and I came up with an idea to earn money to reach my goal. Also, I would shop with mom and was so interested in what made lip balms different, why were there so many? During research, I found most balms sold in stores are made with products harmful to skin. Such as menthol and alcohols. I wanted to create a natural, safe product for everyone.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
I am inspired by all the support I receive. I am in awe of how people love what I am doing as far as my business and my community efforts, and just me overall.
WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU LIKE FOR US TO KNOW? DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING COMING UP?
I would love for everyone to know that by purchasing with my business, NK Natural Lip Balms you are making a difference in a child’s life. During COVID-19, I began collecting
toys for kids whose parents may have been financially impacted. My team and I held a toy drive and collected over 200 toys. I was able to provide toys for my community and that really felt good. I have already started collecting for this year. So, yes shopping with NK means more than you can imagine. Also, this year I am hosting my very own entrepreneur vendor event and pitch contest!
Norriah I love everything about what you’re doing! You are such an inspiration and a true BAWSE! With your drive and positivity, NK Natural Lip Balms is certain to go far! We all will be following you and supporting you. May success forever follow you! Keep shining!
