Throughout history, we have always cared about how we appear to others. Hair styles, fashionable clothes, ornaments, personal scent.

I was a shy, introverted person for most of my younger life. I suffered depression, which was mostly untreated, and I was far from skinny. My confidence and self-esteem fell; I felt invisible everywhere I went. This affected everything in my life – friendships, relationships, school work. It wasn’t until I decided to make a change in myself that I could build my confidence, and develop that self-esteem. And through the efforts of the ‘self-esTEEm Project’, I want to bring what I’ve learnt from my struggles to the world. I want every single person to know they have the greatest gift in the world that they can give themselves and they just don’t know it yet – belief in yourself!
