Another deserving mention is a life motto she abides by,’ If somebody offers you an opportunity &you are not sure if you can do it, say yes to do it and then learn how to do it’. Learning through different methods has to be a continuous process throughout the journey.

She always advises that entrepreneurial journeys cannot be walked through alone and thus conscious efforts should be taken to surround yourself with energies that inspire you, support you in pushing boundaries, and constantly show you the mirror.
