”In my eyes, the hardest accomplishment you can reach is happiness. So far, my proudest accomplishment towards that goal is being able to live in the moment.”

Mihami is half French, quarter Beninese, and a quarter Vietnamese, but she told me she is truly french at heart. Her favourite place in the world is the deep countryside of France at her parents’ home or walking in the streets of Paris. She told me, “I go to France to find myself again.” She moved to Canada almost 8 years ago to study english, and two years ago she founded Neïcy Inc, an online boutique for stylish modest women. When I asked her what her favourite hobby is, Mihami told me, “To reset, find inspiration, and motivation I need to travel on a regular basis to shake up the routine. And it goes without saying that spending time with family and friends is my favourite thing in the world - even more than shopping!” She also loves watching TV shows. She told me how fun it is for her to watch shows where contestants create a best outfit based on a theme, and it has even influenced the way she curates Neïcy’s collections. When I asked Mihami about how she believes she’s perceived she told me, “Because of the surroundings I grew up in, I learned at a young age to be adaptable while staying true to [myself].” She continued to tell me that she hopes she is perceived as an honest and truthful person, both personally and in business.
