Session: Every Adversity is an Opportunity - Think Again
Here I touch upon the various stages that women give up and stop pursuing their growth due to certain unplanned situations that they encounter. Here I share how a single mother in 9yards can still break the glass ceiling. I share my journey as a single mother, driving growth mindset and staying passionate throughout your journey.
