When Jojo was a kid, he did really well in school, always getting good grades and being on the honor roll.

But for Jojo, he was okay with going to school just because he enjoyed learning. He was more interested in gaining knowledge. Also, he easily got bored, especially when he felt the teacher was just reading from the lesson, so there were times he wouldn’t go to class.

Jojo started as a nurse but always had a creative interest in shoes. So, he began making shoes as a hobby. Initially, he had a small factory with just two assistants, offering custom-made everyday shoes.
In late 2013, Jojo realized that making shoes was his true calling. A moment that made it clear was when a client sincerely thanked him for creating special custom shoes for her daughter. That’s when he realized he enjoyed making shoes for special occasions.
Months later, he sponsored a friend in a beauty pageant, and his unique shoe designs caught the attention of a national organization. Soon after, he gained international recognition.
