You can be an painter, fashion designer, sculptor, jewellery designer, shoe/bag designer, baker, chef…..or someone offering unique services (stylist, makeup artist…..) the list is endless.

 I am sure that you all have at some point or the other come across a bright, young, enthusiastic, individual full of zeal and drive who is living his/her dream. We at iGrow would love to feature you and know your growth story.
