What most don’t know is that for many years, she struggled with Self-doubt and fear; battled with Depression and Body Image issues and was Suicidal. She went from being withdrawn with a low self-worth Mindset, to stepping out of her comfort zone with courage to make a difference in her sphere of influence. She started simply with the aim of being a role model for her children, leading by example to live a life of Courage and purpose.

She went from a stay-at-home mother who was confused & lost in self-identity to an entrepreneur who rebuilt her confidence as a Real Estate Consultant, built a furnishing business from scratch & exited successfully after 10 years.
