Marquita Author

Social Media Manager

Marquita is the Co-Founder and CEO of Girlfriend’s Apparel. She was inspired to start the company by her husband 11 years ago. 


While building a brand may have looked effortless from the outside, starting a business at age 28 with no resources or funding quickly forced her to realize that early-stage entrepreneurship was anything but transparent.  


She says, 


"Life has brought forth some serious challenges. With those challenges have come many lessons. I am proud to say, I’ve learned from the lessons. One of my greatest achievements was becoming a mother to two wonderful children that I couldn’t imagine my life without. I’m really enjoying this thing called life. With a wonderful partner like mine to stay in called life becomes a lot easier."
