Since I was young girl in Brazil I dreamed of the day that I would have my own business, knowing that to be able to wake up every day and do the thing I loved and was passionate about would be the greatest job in the world. Having Agringa today is the achievement of that dream. However it took a lot of work and dedication to get to where I am now and my journey wasn’t always easy.
I graduated in Advertising and Marketing from a University in Brazil and soon after started my career in sales, beginning at the very bottom. One day, knowing I had more to give, I asked my boss for extra responsibility and he said he would give me some customers to look after in order to “test me”. The test worked; I became one of the top sales representative in the area, gaining the respect and credibility from my customers and the brands that I worked with. From then on I knew this was definitely what I wanted to do and that I could turn the dream I had as a young girl into a reality. From that moment on, I was determined.
When I arrived in Australia in 2015 , with no English, no career and alone, only one motivation kept me strong and focussed – to own my own jewellery business. I worked 14 hour days for years with the goal of saving enough money to open my own business. It took me a while but then last year I found Agringa and I knew with no doubt that this was for me.
The jewellery is imported from my home country and it embodies who I am - a strong, confident female. Agringa is bold, decided and modern but with a sense of fun. That is exactly how my husband and friends would describe me!
My surname, Matos, means ‘resilience’ and if you have read this far, you will realise that sums up exactly the type of person I am. I knew my dream when I was a young teenage and now years later, I am living it. Thank you to each and every person who has bought Agringa, it’s because of you that I can write this.
I really hope you love Agringa as much as I do and above all else, I hope that when you wear it helps you feel bold, decided and modern, not forgetting of course that sense of fun…..
Why the name Agringa...
Agringa is a cool slang we call foreign people in South America.
Having a foreign jewellery and being in a foreign country there is nothing more convenient and cool than that name.
