What do you see when you look in the mirror?
A confident woman who everyday is practicing choosing her life and looks for the positives in everything.
What do you do for a living?
I am a certified life coach who specializes in helping women build their confidence.
How do you think self-love plays a role in success?
I think it plays a huge rule. I needed to learn how to love and accept myself as I am to build my confidence. Once I was able to do this I was capable of taking on new challenges and consciously creating a life that I love.
How do you think we, as women, can work together to lift each other?
Continue to support one another, and also learn how to check yourself when jealousy/ envy comes up. Learn to celebrate each other’s wins instead of looking at it from a lack mentality.
Have you had any adversities that you’ve had to overcome in order to achieve success?
Mine were internal battles. I struggled with self-doubt and self-criticism the most. I had to learn how to change my mindset so it was supporting me instead of tearing me down.
What has been your greatest accomplishment to date?
The ability to believe in myself. This accomplishment affects every area of my life, and it will help me achieve my dreams.
What inspires you to keep growing?
Two of my biggest values are freedom, and going against the norm. Those values inspire me everyday to keep showing up for myself even when I don’t feel like it.
