What is your favorite food? 
I love food and thus this is a tough one. I would say I love the Coastal foods which are most often spicy and so flavorful.

What is something you have overcome as a woman in this world? 
Body shame. At some point in my life, I struggled with my body image and opinions of others. I have since embraced my body and been comfortable with who I am.

What are you most proud of in the work that you do? How do you empower those around you?
As a counsellor, I love how a client would say they feel heard and relieved after a session; makes me feel it is all worthwhile. As a travel writer, I am proud of the fact that I inspire people to travel and embrace local travel. I empower people especially my friends to go hard after what they love and their creative pursuits by trying to be an embodiment of the same and even having conversations on the same.

I love how beautiful the products are, the fact that they are ethically made and how women empowerment is highly regarded by the brand.
