What are you most proud of?
-The life I have so far - with my husband, 2 beautiful daughters, extended family and friends, a career in the corporate world beginning with an entry-level job, and a small business with my sister we started from scratch.
I moved to the US at age 15 as a student with no grand plan just hoping for a good future. Through the years, I've had many amazing experiences with great memories but I've also gone through some hardships and struggles. I've made mistakes and have had my fair share of failed relationships. Fortunately, with the help of a loving family and supportive friends, I was able to persevere and push through it all. I continue to have challenges in life and it sounds cliche but life is truly like a roller coaster, full of ups and downs but sometimes you just have to raise your hands up in the air and enjoy the ride!
What does being a warrior woman mean to you?
- Warrior woman to me is someone who does not limit challenges but challenges limits.
What is the name of your company?
- Ives and Bees
