106 Countries with business in tow!

The Universe planted sequoia of ambition in my heart, but gave me a bleeding one.
The Universe exhaled adventure into my lungs, but clipped this canary's wings.
The Universe roared freedom into my soul, but shackled me with gender, color and social chains.
The Universe made me the ocean, but stuffed me into small human body.
The Universe ignited my love for all people, but made me too hyper sensitive to be around them.
How am I even still alive?!?

And yet... here I am, 100+ countries, six-figure business, the best of bestfriends, fulfilling my life's purpose to co-create a world where all women feel a deep sense of freedom, joy and belonging.
