So I could say I was gone, so many things affected me, I was in a bad relationship that became a very notorious relationship and I was really down.
“But one day, I just stood up and looked at myself in the mirror and said this is not me. It was at that point I decided to pick the pieces of my life and mould them back together.

The transformation happened when I thought everything was over but I decided to stand strong and tall. It wasn’t easy but I pulled through.”
