Corporate trainer. I lost my mom and sister in a span of 8 months, overcoming the loss was a challenge but today I truly believe in whatever happens, happens for a reason and for a good one. My weightloss has also been a journey in itself, it has taught me how not to give up and loving yourself is equally important.

Diagnosed with Psoriasis during Covid. Having a disease like Psoriasis at such an early age gradually affected my self confidence and my concerns regarding health. Depression also plays a vital role in this condition which becomes a cycle for me - the flare ups would affect my mental state which in turn affected my condition.
After lots of research I finally learnt about the disease and coping up against it everyday.On a journey from low self-esteem to self-love.

Writer & Poet. Having Parkinson's disease as a young mom made me realise that life is short and time is precious. It gave me insight into who really cares and helped identify what I like to call “surface level” friendships. It made me more ambitious as I am aware that my body today is the best that it can be thanks to the condition closing in on me slowly , day by day. It taught me to be grateful for my life and made me celebrate small wins and to never take a healthy body for granted.

Lecturer/ Teacher/ Writer. I live with dystonia and epilepsy. Some people like me have sudden spasms or tremors in my body and sometimes, I end up crying because the pain can be incredibly painful. If you see me in real life, you'd think that I am dancing 😂 I also struggle with epilepsy that causes frequent seizures. I have managed to be free of epilepsy attacks for the past 2 yrs. I have managed to document my journey with rehabilitation and management everyday through my personal social media.

Despite the inconvenience, I have learnt to embrace my illnesses that I have as a blessing. I am able to appreciate many things in my life, from my family and friends to the finer things in life like food!
