We Teach Me inspires people to pursue their passion. Who inspires you to pursue yours?
I think my family are key people in empowering me to pursue my dreams. It’s the way I grew up. They never discriminated between me and my brother – whatever he could do I could do. We grew up, in the most way, where we were pushed and were encouraged to do more. To pursue more, to believe in ourselves. I think that’s very important.
Bad things will happen. But what you need to do is adjust, get up and continue. Courage is like something that I really keep in my mind. I keep in mind that the previous generation are the people that helped me to do it.
Of course the team – and having an amazing team around you that are working hard, believe in your vision, they are there for you. They support you. They see you through the hard times and celebrate your success and cry together when bad things are happening. No one can ever, ever achieve anything without an amazing team around them. It’s the courage that will carry you through those difficult times to keep you going.
Was it always your intention to become an entrepreneur?
No. I had no business background whatsoever. I had no idea what I was doing in the beginning. I’m still learning so so much every day. You can say that you have an entrepreneurial spirit and that’s fine. But all people know what they’re doing, I think it’s more finding something that challenges you, I guess. A purpose that’s worth putting your time in and that you really love doing. The resilience and the passion for work. Finding ways to fight adversity and the courage to keep going -that’s what makes an entrepreneur.
