Kenyan socialite, model, entrepreneur and the founder of Huddah cosmetics, Huddah Monroe has revealed why she left prestigious college during her second year.
A few years ago, Huddah established Huddah Cosmetics, whose products have been so successful that celebrities like Avril, Tanasha Donna, and Nyce Wanjeri have been seen wearing some of her products.
Recently, Huddah Cosmetics was also chosen as the first social commerce merchant on Mula Shops.
Mula Shops is a Cellulant payment platform that allows customers to try and discover products before purchasing them thanks to the integration of Augmented Reality into Facebook Messenger.
However, Huddah whose real name is Alhuda Njoroge disclosed this in a shared video on her YouTube channel that she built her company out of being street smart as she dropped out of college halfway to give her younger brothers an opportunity to education.
“I was born into a poor family, I didn’t graduate. I stopped college midway to give my younger brothers the chance to education. I am good at setting businesses then I employe graduates as accountants, C.E.O and managers and people with more experience in the business than me and give them good pay. They build the companies while I tour away enjoying the fruits of my labor,” Huddah stated.
The youthful entrepreneur further said that business acumen is not always learned in school, some people are just born with it.
“If being in school truly taught the art of doing business, lecturers wouldn’t be wasting their precious time teaching, they would be billionaires. Not everything is taught in school. You gotta be born with it I guess,” she said.
The YouTuber also disclosed that she dropped out of the prestigious university because their teaching methods were ‘very traditional’.
“I left USIU in my second year because I felt like the university’s teaching methods were very traditional. When you get admitted into university things need to be updated. You need to be taught how people think at a current time they are in and that’s not what the school was doing for me. As I was in the media, I learned that even if have earned a degree, it’s gonna be a waste of time and money because nothing can be implemented practically,” she explained in a video on her YouTube channel.
