Growing up I experienced conditioning that urged me to blend in, to fade into the background. This never felt natural to me as I had a vibrant personality and an innate drive within me. However, everything changed when I received encouragement from a mentor during my time working in retail at a young age. Their guidance led me to pursue a career in retail buying and apply for a position at the company's head office in the buying department. This marked the beginning of a transformative journey in both my professional life and personal growth. Throughout this journey, I was fortunate to connect with incredible mentors. The experiences, knowledge, and achievements I gained along the way accelerated my confidence and courage. Embracing my femininity became essential, especially as one of the few females in my team.
