Her constant determination empowered her to push forward and progress in her career.
Despite being boxed, labeled, and victimized with ugly racial prejudice at all levels she has risen beautifully through her ranks and attained unimaginable success in her goals in life.
Today, apart from being professionally successful, she has achieved the joys of raising a healthy family of her own. She is the proud mother of five beautiful children, including adorable twins. They are all under 6 years of age. She has a loving and supportive husband without whom this journey would not have been possible.
It took almost 10 years after her marriage to conceive, she did not lose faith and continued to pray and believe and her eldest daughter was born via IVF.
