While some people spend their entire lives trying to find the one thing they are truly passionate about, there are others who appear to have been born with set goals.
One of such people is a Nigerian boy who at just the age of 12, has already proven that when it comes to creating fashionable pieces, he isn't one to be messed with.
His proud mother, Uchenna Iloka, had taken to a closed Facebook group for mothers, to show off some of her son's creations, as she advised parents to encourage their children to pursue their passion.
In her words:

"Some of my 12yr old creations he made. He's even drafting his own patterns. Everything he makes except for the ones he make for him & his brothers. We donate it to the less fortunate. Now he's teaching his younger brothers during the summer season. I say this to let mothers listen to what your kids is passionate about & encourage them to pursue it. Don't shut them down."
