Rukshana Triem

Womens lifestyle coaching LLC

Meet the Founder for African Fashion show portland Oregon and Founder of Firmina Foundation Empowering Children through Education Building schools in Mozambique.

Rukshana is a Women’s Lifestyle Coach for her Company called Womens Lifestyle coaching LLC. Rukshana Triem, came from Zambia by way of Malawi and Mozambique. At 15 years old her family came to America to start a new life with hope, promise and excitement. After many years of learning, living, an autobiography, and starting a coaching business, she decided to take her Grandmother Firmina’s advice and build schools.

She wanted to give back to those countries that poured passion for education into her. Children have previously been educated under mango trees and as romantic as that may sound to some, it is not the optimum situation for learning. The Foundation was founded in 2018. After several fundraisers from a general auction in 2019, to a full-blown women’s conference with a fashion show in 2020, a school was built in Mozambique. During the time of Covid, Rukshana reflected on what made her passionate…the Fashion Show!
