Have you ever felt limited by your circumstances?
We’ve all been there! Perhaps you feel limited by a health condition, financial struggles or difficult family relationships… I was born with a condition known as Brittle Bones disease, and the main symptom is bones that break very, very easily!
This condition limited me especially during childhood because I had to undergo numerous surgeries and missed out on a lot of fun moments. I remember the intense sense of frustration I used to feel, at having to watch from my bedroom window while my sisters and all the other kids in the neighbourhood played outside in the sunshine.
The turning point for me came many years later… after I had successfully graduated from University with a degree in Computer Science. My confidence had taken a big hit because I was struggling to find employment, unlike most of my classmates. Something needed to change.
I decided to stop comparing my life to other people, to stop doubting in my own abilities, and to stop letting a disability define me as a person! Breaking those barriers gave me the platform to build a high level Technology career within Management Consulting and the Financial services – and TODAY I am using my stories and experiences to break barriers in the speaking world, as I continue to push forward my mission of a world with no limitations.
