Her Life Before the Discovery of Self Confidence

Tiffany has always been somewhat of a confident person, in the sense that she really did not care what people think (for the most part), but almost in a way of rebellion, because deep down she is pretty sure she did care what people thought of her. There was a lot of ego, unawareness, pressure to conform to social norms, and the typical phases of self-discovery as she was growing up.

The “AHA” Moment

Tiffany quit her job last year and travelled through Asia and Africa, partly by herself. For the first time in a very long time, she felt like she was being true to herself, not by what she was doing, but how she was feeling. She felt so connected, transparent, and happy.
