HOW SHE BECAME AN ENTREPRENEUR
"It was the right timing. My friend, then-business partner, introduced the natural beauty brand, Handmade Heroes, to me and I really loved the product. He suggested that I give running a business a try since I already have an 'influence' and can use it as a marketing tool. It was a product I believed in so I thought, 'Yes, let's do it!' We tested the market, did a lot of consignments, distributed to pharmacies and launched it on Instagram. The official launch only happened some two years later. Now, three years later, my current business partner is coming onboard full time and we have plans to expand."
HER PROUDEST MOMENT AS AN ENTREPRENEUR
"When people tell me they've heard of Handmade Heroes and that they use it. Recently, a girl came up to me and told me how she had a lip allergy and for six months, she used all kinds of products and nothing worked—until she tried ours. And now she's going to buy the whole range. I think these are the kind of small things that matters the most. It makes me feel that I didn't choose the wrong product to bring in."
