I am a poet, social entrepreneur and an aspiring inspirational speaker. I hope to inspire the hearts of many through my story. I am passionate about women empowerment and the importance of sharing. I also believe that we are empowered to empower. This initiative was built based on personal experiences that I had gone through. What enabled me to persevere is the vulnerability of those around me, and how they were willing to share their stories with me. I have struggled with self-esteem issues for a long time. My thoughts about myself crippled the way in which I lived my life. I wanted to create this platform to encourage women to love themselves and remind them that they have a place here and there is a purpose for which they were created.
Director & Founder of We Are Becoming, Social Media Coordinator, Content Creator
I am studying a double major degree in Management and communications. I am a very compassionate person and believe that I can easily connect with different people. By mastering emotional intelligence, I know that I am able to deal with people from different cultural backgrounds and I find joy in communications. I am part of We are Becoming because a lot of my values and experiences align with the core of the business. I have grown this hunger in me, to want to connect with more women who have been through heartbreak and depression. Becoming is about bringing out the most confident, vibrant and unique woman and it was inspired by the chains of insecurities. It is about embracing yourself and loving yourself wholly and completely.
Co-founder of We Are Becoming
I'm an extrovert who enjoys being in the company of people. I enjoy entertaining. and interacting with people. From my interactions, I am able to observe people and their way of thinking and processing. I believe in We Are Becoming. I believe life is about continuous learning and improvement and as women we need that. We need to constantly be growing more, improving ourselves to better versions of ourselves. I believe that that is achieved by embracing one's experiences, other people experiences and also learning from them. We are becoming produces a platform for this and I'm privileged to be a part of this.
Community Manager for We Are Becoming
I am an optimist laced with chunks of a realist. A lover of all things artsy, comedic and a little controversial. I’m an extrovert in my inner circle. I believe that service is part of everyone’s higher calling. There’s something so beautiful, almost magical when we see a woman become the ultimate version of herself. We Are Becoming relentlessly strives to help women in that process - I want to be a part of this!
Events Coordinator for We Are Becoming
I'm always hesitant about this question because I'm friendly but cold, hopeful but cynical. I'm this and that. I love to laugh and I love to see the right people win. I'd like to become comfortable with my soft emotions and being vulnerable. People like that are the kind of people I admire most. Writing for Becoming helps me with that while giving me a sense of personal security. It's a creative outlet that allows me to be "this and that".
