In an interview she talks about the challenges experienced with finding the right technology to support the ecommerce business.

She also encourages more youths to utilise their skills in creating the life that they want through entrepreneurship, while looking for their dream job.
Her advice, “take the bull by its horns, build the skills they need and start businesses that will create multiple income streams. There is a saying that “If nobody is giving you a sit at the table, then build your own table.”
