Starting a new business

Founded in 2020 by myself, Karlisha Farrugia.  Farrugiascents was born in the months of quarantine, spending an abundant amount of time at home!

When I first started out, my passion for having my own business is what fueled me to continue. My mother was also a big inspiration as she was diagnosed with cancer this year, which made me want to push myself to find something I  love so that my Mother would be proud (which she always is regardless). I graduated in 2018 and felt like a lost cause as I realised I didn't want to go into a career involving my degree - I wanted to build my own business. 

I have never had help from family with money or ever been in a great financial place and I'd love to do this to prove myself wrong and build an amazing future. I am a black, queer, woman which is something I'm proud of and want to succeed 10x harder because of!

I really want to be able to put my all into this as it's the first time I've been excited about something in a long time. But I don't have family other than my Mum who is in no place to help me.

Any funds made will be used for:
- Wax for candles/wax melts
- Buying packaging
- Promotion
- Thank you for your order cards
- Build a website
- Printer (to print postage labels)
- Business events
