Meet Ifueko Osarogiagbon! Ifueko created “Glamdom” during her time to LITE this past spring. Glamdom is an online fashion magazine made by girls of color to empower and inspire girls every shade of beauty. Ifueko’s brand is predominately on her Instagram (@glam.dom) where there are an array of aesthetically pleasing and inspiring posts. Ifueko recently graduated from Houston High School and will be attending the University of California in Los Angeles this fall. Ifueko really shined throughout her time at LITE and we don’t expect anything less from her in years to come. Dream big Ifueko!
