In junior secondary, she was appointed as Deputy Head Girl. She was so terrified that she requested to be excused from the responsibility. She was excused. She couldn’t master her own fear and lack of belief in herself. She held herself back. In her senior year she was appointed as a Captain. This time she couldn’t be excused from the responsibility, but she found a way to let fear control her. What was her internal dialogue “Fear, you are not good enough, you are a coward, you can’t do it, everyone will laugh at you, and you don’t have the qualities that others have to fit in the profile.” Can you relate to this?
Her inspiring story of fear of taking up leadership roles gave her interest in the area of Leadership and helping others boost confidence in themselves. This saw her organise teleconferences from USA on Lessons in Leadership which featured world leaders like Jack Welch, Prof. Prahalad, Giuliani, Dr. Blanchard, Dr. Kotter, Dr Maxwell, Abrashoff and Dr. Steve Lundin.
She inspires and transforms over thousands of people through seminars, conferences, Imprint Newsletter, WIL (Women in Leadership) Newsletter and The Assistant Newsletter.

She is very passionate about making a difference in the world.
