b) How do you love yourself?
Would you believe if I tell you I only learnt to do so last year?
I used to work tirelessly, and I used to place other’s opinions or their needs above myself. A turning point came, now I’ve learnt to put myself as priority, and it’s something to work on constantly.
I’ve always believed in “work on you for you” and taking joy in the smallest things, but it wasn’t until last year that I wasn’t practising enough of what I preach. And I’ve felt that I’ve become much happier because I’m tending to my body and my mind, and really understanding that happiness starts from loving yourself. The world starts gravitating in favour of you when you’re a better person with healthy thoughts.
c) To you, what is a woman’s beauty?
A woman is attractive when she takes charge of her life and is focused on her goals. I like very driven women. More importantly, I find a woman’s beauty lies a lot in how she is as a person in the face of trying circumstances or different people, and still remains real and true as a person.
How did you overcome these challenges?
Can I say that everything has been a challenge? This path has been a challenge ever since I identified that I was really running a business- it didn’t hit me until about 3 years into it because I was just that little girl who really wanted to take photos. I didnt think I was cut out to be an entrepreneur and I hadn’t exactly planned for this. There was so much to learn when it comes to the technical knowledge and the business know-hows, and this is an ongoing process cause there’s just so much to learn on a daily basis with the world constantly changing, and it scares me but I just repeat to myself that failure is not an option for me and I just have to work doubly hard.
