StarLight: Nickaise Shernicka Moses of ‘Me ,C’s’

Nickaise Shernicka Moses

Nickaise Shernicka Moses known as “Missy”, is the owner of a sewing business called “Me,C’s.” Nickaise always had a passion for clothes, colours and the different ways people matched outfits, especially during independence season.

However, she said  growing up, her parents could not afford to buy her all the nice clothes she wanted because there were other important priorities.

During her teenage years, roughly around the age of 14, Nickaise discovered that her grandmother had an ancient foot pedal sewing machine which she handed down to her mother. In her free time after school and homework, she would always find herself drawn to the machine but during her high school years she was forced to pay greater attention to her school work.

Although sewing classes were available at the high school, Nickaise could not find time to juggle sewing and her other subjects. After successfully completing college and facing unemployment for 5 months, she decided to get back into sewing. Her family and friends have been a source of motivation for her as far as sewing is concerned and she continues to enjoy their support.

Her sewing business, “Me ,C’s” has just been launched but Nickaise is already producing some of the most exquisite garments for carnival bands, stores and individuals.

Her major challenge at the moment, is acquiring funds to obtain better sewing equipment and grow her business.

As a seamstress, Nickaise sews curtains, different types of outfits, bonnets and the like. She can be reached on her cell phone at 1-767 317 4701.

    Great, if I am to provide a line of encouragement to the young lady and those in authority.

    Madam, please draw up a business plan, take to the ministry responsible for small business who should be happy to assist.
    I say “happy” because you would be able to create employment where they lack.
    My advise to the government, “since your PM is well known over the world and friendly donors are begging to assist, then why not ask for about 100 sewing machine for this young lady business.
    With all the cash that is available in the government disposal, assist with a ware-house, help with rent for 1Yr, duty fee on imported material for 1Yr, have someone from the ministry work with her business providing the right advise and support.
    see this project off the ground and this will be the next big thing. when others see what was able to achieve you will see how the mindset of the nation would change for the better.
    This is the government opportunity to make a different and provide a…

    Good job! This is a good thing you have there my child. Sewing can get frustrating, I sew too. But do not give up…keep at it and you will do well. Hoping when I come back to DA in a couple years I will find you bigger and better! God bless all you do.

    Missy I am impressed!

    May I suggest, there is potential for cool clothing for the tropics. Most of what is imported is tight fitting polyester and more suited for winter in New York rather than the all year round heat of Dominica.

    You’ve got the Dominican spirit I always knew… it’s a pitty others your age / generation can’t follow suit, as opposed to sit idle and await government’s “cool outs”.

    The best employment is to be an entrepreneur… The advantage is that you are doing what you love, so you do it to best of your abilities with so much passion! God will provide for you to get what you need to grow your business.
