Meet UCEDC’s Latest Instagram Winner, Shakira Drones, Owner of Ikiralot Crafts


When we reached out to Shakira Drones of Ikiralot Krafts to let her know she’d won our latest Instagram contest, she was so excited that she decided to come to our offices to pick up her prize and meet our team. We are so glad she did!

Shakira works as a Certified School Nurse by day and started her small business while working full-time. She is a bright entrepreneur who radiates positivity and is passionate about her many endeavors, which include writing a book and running Community Soap Making Classes through Ikiralot Krafts.

We are thrilled that she has found UCEDC’s workshops educational and we are taking her feedback on the current scheduling of our virtual incubator program into account as we plan for the future of the program.
