Three sisters, Mirian Chinyere Ugokwe, Lilian Chioma Ugokwe and MarySonia Chizoba Ugokwe, have created an Afrocentric emoji, called AfreekMoji.
AfreekMoji is a medium these sisters and entrepreneurs hope to share and educate the world about their beautiful African culture.
The sisters, aged 22 and 21 years old (Mirian and Lilian are twins), were born and raised in Aba, Nigeria, but they presently live in the US.
They are also the founders of Danshikipride, an international African clothing business.
With parents who are entrepreneurs, these siblings had always wanted to be entrepreneurs too, so, when they moved to the United States in June 2007, they decided to keep their African upbringing alive.
