What is your biggest success?

My biggest success has been creating a thriving learning environment where people of all ages can flourish. Offering a wide array of accredited and non-accredited courses, ranging from essential life-saving skills like First Aid and CPR to specialized areas like Pediatric First Aid and Seizures First Aid, has allowed me to empower individuals with essential knowledge and confidence. Additionally, my dedication to nurturing entrepreneurial talents through courses in entrepreneurship and business essentials has played a significant role in the success of numerous small businesses. But beyond just education, it's about fostering a culture of continuous learning and empowerment. Through my free workshops, I've been able to democratize access to education, making it inclusive and available to everyone. My greatest achievement isn't just about numbers; it's about the countless lives I've impacted and transformed through education and empowerment.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

My biggest hurdle undoubtedly occurred last year with a car accident, followed by a stroke in January this year. These challenges could have easily derailed my journey, but instead, they became profound opportunities for growth. Enduring such trials forced me to confront my vulnerabilities and reassess my priorities. Through the arduous process of recovery, I gained invaluable insights into resilience, perseverance, and the importance of self-care. These experiences reshaped my perspective, igniting a newfound determination to thrive despite adversity. Rather than succumbing to despair, I emerged from these setbacks with a deeper appreciation for life's fragility and preciousness. Each obstacle became a stepping stone, propelling me forward on my journey of personal and professional development. Despite the hardships, I am grateful for the lessons learned and the strength gained, fueling my continued growth and resilience.
