What inspires this multifaceted wondermama?
"My inspirations come from the bible first, as I am currently in the process of writing my first book taken from the book of Esther and other inspirations are within the creative arts, from music, to dance, to paintings and more, I draw a lot from these."
How has motherhood changed her?
"Motherhood hasn’t necessarily changed me, I would say it has made me realise that I am a lot stronger than I ever thought I could be, I am more focused, determined and ambitious because more than ever now, failure is not an option, I have 2 children to raise, need to pave the way for them to be successful in life and be a great role model. To me, a wondermama is a strong mother who keeps her pride, dignity, respects herself and keeps it moving, no matter her situation or circumstance."
What is her greatest accomplishment thus far?
"My greatest accomplishments aside from my beautiful children and getting married would definitely have to be launching my foundation. It was birthed in my heart at the tender age of 14 and now it's a reality which I worked extremely hard for and I am very grateful."
Her message to other mums out there?
"DON’T GIVE UP! It’s so easy to lose yourself when you become a mother because you pay such a huge sacrifice, especially when it comes to your career and passion, your children should be your strength, so use that to empower yourself and keep knocking away all obstacles."
