It was during Chinese New Year when I was praying and asking God what I could do to help the marginalized especially women and Children. I went on YouTube trying to see if I could learn a skill. I came across a video of a woman who was teaching on jewelry making my heart leaped. I knew this was it. I prayed about and felt in my heart that I could do it and help others. I went to my best friend Miss Tula and told her about it. Her response was very powerful it gave me confidence. She asked me what I needed l told her what I needed and she started sourcing and purchasing tools and different findings. I started to learn and in March I had my first exhibition of many that would follow. A big shout out to the team I worked with at BIK China they were very supportive!
