Life Lessons
What lessons you have learned so far, and how have these lessons helped you achieve your goals?

I’ve learnt not to care what people think about you. I’ve had so many people hating and trying to take me down, and I realized for everyone 1 person that hates, there are 3 that are supporting me. If you keep your mind set on a goal, you can achieve it, no matter what anyone else says.

Do you have a favourite quote or motto that you live by?

I think the thing I live by is just not caring what people say about you. As long as you know who you are and you believe in yourself, no one else matters. I also live by supporting other girls and fellow influencers! There is nothing more special than people supporting each other.

What advice can you give to help others become the best person they can be?

To be the best you, you need to stop caring what other people say. People will try to take you down and put you in a box based on what society deems is right or wrong. All you need to be the best you is to believe in yourself and love yourself. You need to have self-love before you can try to influence other people to love themselves.

Do you have any hobbies or interests?

I love anything that has to do with Fashion, Fitness or Beauty. The gym is one of my biggest passions in life, it is my second home. Fashion is another huge part of what makes me who I am, fashion is my first language. I also really enjoy dancing and makeup!
