Success is such a subjective concept that everyone likely views differently. So how do you define success?
Success in life comes with freedom of choice, the flexibility of doing what you want, working on your own terms and financial independence. To achieve it, you should not be afraid to take risks, be positive and see the opportunity in everything. A successful career is important, but it is not everything to me. As a woman, I need to be also successful in the personal sphere. There is no bigger happiness than the love of your family.

I feel privileged to be in that position. It comes with responsibility because many people look up to me. They seek pieces of advice in private messages.
