Where does your motivation come from?
My motivation firstly comes from my foundation and belief in God. I am a firm believer in the power of faith and believing in yourself. It also comes from my family upbringing, things were not always easy however, I believe that the challenges that I experienced growing up, helped me to become the person I am today. Lastly, my motivation comes from the ability to touch people’s lives. I love influencing people and inspiring them to live their dreams. I aim to continue to use my book ‘I Dare You’ and also my organization: Young Ladies Club as a vehicle to empower my generation.
