Having stayed on her own from the young age of 16, this 26 year old had lived in 4 countries, done multiple jobs, shifted careers, broken hearts and had had her own share of adventures….After a moment of thinking, this is what she had to say –

- Make a difference while you can.
- Don’t take shit. Stand up for Yourself.
