What’s your biggest challenge?

Not speaking another language!

Ninja super skill people don’t know you possess?

Turning nothing into something bigger than most dem possible.

Favorite place in the world? 

Not sure I’ve been there yet, but I’m going to Bali in May… If I had to choose one, St Thomas (where I live). It’s the most beautifully imperfect little island I’ve ever been to and if you give to her, she gives back 10 fold.

What gets you the most excited in life?

Adventure, and empowering women with the tools to release her own inner lioness.

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?

Booking a flight the day before heading down to St-Thomas.
