Here are some women that been an inspiration to me in my life and somehow shaped a little bit of who I am today. So of course I have a lot to thank for from my mum, sister and some amazing friends and teachers. I've been lucky to have a lot of people believing in me and always encouraged me to reach my dreams, who seen the potentials in me even when I couldn't.
But here are some more people who influenced me in my life that you might have heard of.
