Life Is Like A Box of Flowers

VOA Episode 4

Guest: Tobore Oweh, Floral Designer

“Flowers possess the same traits that God has put in us and if we really pay attention to nature and flowers they can really teach us how we should be as humans.” In this episode of Heart of the Artist, we sit down with the uber-talented Toboreh Oweh, who tells us about her life as a floral designer. This Nigerian goddess ditched her white dental assistant coat and model career in NYC packed her bags and started her unique flower business in sunny California. But Toboreh’s journey wasn’t all sunshine and roses. Being an immigrant on an undocumented DACA status who can’t even go back to visit her homeland of Nigeria only begins to tell of the hurdles that Toboreh has overcome. Despite that, she always remains optimistic and upbeat, and she has a talent for finding beauty in both nature and life. Toboreh shares her unique philosophy surrounding the spirituality of flowers and how they can teach us a thing or two about living life to its fullest.
