Business Woman - Entrepreneurial Coach - Diversity Ambassador - Motivational & Public Speaker

I was born in Canning Town,East London in 1974, my mum came over to the UK from Ghana in 1972 for arranged marriage that went completely wrong within 4 years from arriving in the UK she fled to a women's refuge camp to save her own life and mine when I was just one and a half years old.

Growing up as a young Black girl in East London in the 70's was really tough, I faced a lot of adversities including racism but I didn't let that hold me back asides from that I had a really traumatic childhood and horrendous teenage life that literally scared me for life (physically,mentality and emotionally)... but still I did not let that hold me back either!

From the age of 10, I looked after my two younger brothers everyday to help my mum (who had remarried) and at the age of 12, I started working on a market stall earning my own money and helping others, I have never stopped since then

Today, I am a business woman, employer, entrepreneur & coach wearing many 'hats'.

My dream is to continue to make a contribution to society and fulfil my God-given purpose to help others through my business, social and personal life in whatever shape or form, whether it's from making a small difference to inspiring, encouraging and motivating others.

I have been running businesses for over 17 years and it has not been easy, I have had the rewards(and the tests), seen the good and the bad, the sunshine and the rain. but I would not change a thing! It has made me who I am today!

I have won many awards and have been recognised for my achievements (and challenges). Despite the challenges I have faced, I believe I can create a legacy by just being ME! What is Your Story? Don't Let Anything Hold YOU back !
