Story

Born and raised in the UK and now living in Toronto, Canada has shown me many challenges from cultural diversity to really recognizing who I am, and am I the best version of myself. Throughout many experiences and life challenges I have come to learn that we are all given an opportunity to be who we are. That can be based on the belief systems and values that shaped us to be who we are or we can take action, and be who we want to be. As a reflection I recognize that I was given an opportunity to be the best version of myself, without any limiting beliefs, cultural limitations and unrealistic expectations from others. With my entire family in the UK and USA, alone here in Canada has offered me an opportunity to be limitless and move beyond boundaries that would have somewhat limited my life’s journey if I was surrounded by family.

I’d like to share my story of expectations others had of me and of the ones I had of myself, and how sometimes being alone in a country has many added benefits and opportunities to dream big and, just go for it.
