Who Am I?
I am a mother of three – A boy with lots of developmental challenges who taught me so much about acceptance and resilience, a confident and sassy girl who has a big heart to love and to give, and a happy baby boy who brings me more joy than I’ve ever imagined.
I am a wife – To a husband, who loves me for who I am and always sees the beauty and value in me, even when I question it; who believes in me, and always sees me as a star and keeps inspiring me to shine.
I am a warrior – I love fiercely and fight fiercely, for the better of my life. I almost died when I was 27 and I kept my head up and fought hard to live on. And it is true that what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. When I am going through tough times, I will not pretend everything is ok. I cry, I reflect and I carry on. I don’t give up, I don’t give in.
My Coaching Journey
I consider myself a confident person, but I have learned that confidence is not a constant. It is a skill that needs to be practiced and strengthened. It changes with the circumstances you are in. When I struggled with my previous relationship, I lost my confidence. I questioned if I was good enough and if I would ever find the right person for me. Years later, after I transitioned from working in a Fortune 500 company to be a full-time mom, my confidence was shaken again. I didn’t feel a sense of accomplishment after chasing the kids around all day, keeping up with the chores, and crying over mistakes as a first-time mom. I worked harder than ever, and yet I felt the least value and recognition.
I was overwhelmed by self-doubt in my capability of being a good mom. My appearance highlighted chronic exhaustion. In addition to the challenge of being a new mom, I felt the isolation of living in a new country with no family and friends close by. [Read More…]
I am an optimist – I believe everything happens for a reason and everything will unfold to the highest good. I believe everything shapes us and nothing is ever wasted. I don’t believe in failure. Either you win or you learn. I believe mindset is the foundation of everything. Once you shift your mindset, your potential will be unleashed and everything is possible. Even during the darkest time, I see light through the darkness.
I am an achiever – I believe we are all born with our unique talents and strengths and what matters is how to discover them and maximize them to succeed. I have a Master’s Degree in Health and Wellness Coaching and another Master’s Degree in Communication. I am also a Certified Coach by the International Coaching Federation (ICF), a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC) and a Certified Leadership Coach by Certified Coaching Federation (CFF).
I am a life-long learner – I feel energized by learning something new. Right now I am on the path of becoming a Certified Positive Psychology Practitioner and a Certified Character Strength Practitioner.
I am a dreamer – I believe everything is possible and the first step is to visualize it. I believe we need to “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.” I am ambitious and goal oriented. I dare to dream and I dream big.
