We had the good fortune of connecting with Nickeya Hannah and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Nickeya, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I wanted to create something that would create a positive impact to girls and boys through adults.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I am a Professional Executive Assistant who created my business (PPY) with my own money (no loans). I am still successfully working full-till, running my company and building a global empire.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would initially take my friend to my home, the most peaceful place ever, then we would enjoy a late dinner in Malibu (Nobu), so he/she can see multiple movie (or music) stars. During the week we would travel to San Diego, to enjoy the SD Zoo, local beach, and historical Getty Center Museum. Fin ally we would end our last breakfast with a brunch at Clairs (Long Beach Museum).

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
We would like to shoutout Patricia Hannah, who is the mother of our CEO (Nickeya Hannah). At age 9, Nickeya received “the talk” by her mom about hygiene etiquette (menstrual) and at age 13 she started at Dodger Stadium; however, this was a welcomed experienced because she was prepared. Nickeya was taught to carry a hygiene bag (in her purse) that included items she could use when needed (wipes, disposable bag, etc…). As an adult, Nickeya noticed that not everyone had the same experience (the talk) so it became her mission to empower adult women to talk to youth girls (mom, guardian, teachers, mentors, etc…) so they can be prepared to take on challenges that would arise. Hygiene can play a large part in being bullied, by impacting their grades, communication or other.
