I am inspired by my late mother to excel in the ANTI-AGING and Skin industry. She passed away suddenly at the age of 46 years old and had terrible skin problems which affected her self-confidence. I was 19 years old, just 3 weeks of starting my medical school in a new country. She did not have the advances we have today and I made it my mission to help as many people as I can with their skin confidence.
I am inspired by my amazing father to excel in entrepreneurship and creating a legacy. He was too poor to go to university and came out to work his way up from mining stones in a quarry to owning a successful construction service company.
I love teaching and I love learning. I am the eldest child of 7 children, hence having to make complex things simple and fun to learn. I enjoy working in a team, especially when we have the same goal of personal development and empowering people around us.
In my lifetime, I would love to achieve this (or enjoy striving for it!):-
1. Branches of beautiful clinics to help people look and feel great, offering advance skin solutions, aesthetic treatments, weight management programs and preventative medicine.
2. A training academy educating practitioners and specialist in skin, health and the art of business.
3. An organisation that practitioners can collectively help people through volunteering their time, helping people with acne scars, trauma scars and boosting their confidence.
4. A fun organisation to teach school kids about SKIN HEALTH, skin care and health - to prevent acne and weight problems which often leave lasting scars both internally and externally.
5. A successful webTV show to educate people about skin, health and confidence! Would love to interview amazing women e.g. Helen Mirren, Angelina Jolie, Oprah Winfrey, Meryl Streep, Michelle Obama and Louise Hays just to name a few.
Just a few dreams and of course, to have a beautiful family, travel the world, make a difference and have a blast doing it!
