As we prepare the next round of interviews for Season 2 we are going to rebroadcast some of our favorite episodes. These are our Episode Remixes.
First up: Ni'Kita Wilson, a cosmetic chemist, and product development expert who also has experience in contract manufacturer. This interview originally ran as episode 15, but we updated the format to match this season.
Since we spoke in 2020, Ni'Kita has a gotten new role: Vice President of Product Development at OUAI. The celebrity haircare line from Jen Atkins (recently purchased by P&G). But her advice is timeless.
Learn how she went from wanting to be a doctor to ending up with a first job in forensic sciences for the state.
Discover how she stumbled onto the beauty industry and what the roles she has taken on thus far have taught her.
It's important to note that Ni'Kita didn't know that there was such a thing as cosmetic chemistry or product development and she managed to build a career in beauty after discovering it.
Don't let a lack of an internship stop you from trying. Ni'Kita proves that it can be done!!
