The Writer

My late mother once said to me, “you are living the life that I wanted for myself”.

Her words are the driving force for my life. My life is her legacy.

Sometimes the biggest wake-up calls come at the most inopportune times. It was not until mum passed away that I felt the ground under my feet and oxygen in my lungs.

Life never felt more precious. Gone were the days of crunching numbers and the illusion of control. I needed more.

With my late mother for inspiration and motivation from the work of Dr. Peter Levine, Dr. Gabor Maté, Dr Brené Brown, and Mark Wolynn, I began the path of inner work.

The path of truly seeing myself with all of my flaws and insecurities.

The path of recognizing the victim and empowering the survivor.

The path of falling to my knees and crying like a baby.

The path of holding my head high and owning the continuous journey of becoming.

Life has led me to become a multi-passionate individual, a trained yoga teacher, counsellor, writer, and award-winning community volunteer in the mental health space.

Today Choose You is my journey on the path. It welcomes you as you are, at any point in your life, and allows you to be whoever you want to be. With love.
