Her achievements doesn’t end up here.

Also, shs transformed the culture by adapting to the changing world. She changed the industry by shifting the focus on healthy eating and nutrition. Talking about managing it all and achieving her dream, she said, “Women are daughters, mothers, wives, and employees, and they are often called upon to make tremendous sacrifices, because they cannot be everything, all the time.” It’s simple, isn’t it? Take on each role and give it your hundred percent for you to be where you want to be!
