I’ve been self loving from a young age (had no idea that’s what it was called) as this was how I managed to overcome a lot of my insecurities surrounding my sickle cell. Growing with this mentality has given me so much confidence that I can sometimes come across as a little bit conceited… I even once described myself as ‘amazing’ in an interview. Lol!

My confidence blossomed when I began to own my health condition and everything that came with it instead of trying to hide it. You can read about my Conscious Confidence Mechanism in my chapter of Confidence Confidential.
