“Artistic talent is a gift from God and whoever discovers it in himself has a certain obligation:to know that he cannot waste this talent, but must develop it.” Pope John Paul II

By the age of 5 years, I could use a sewing machine! This terrified Ma (my mama as I call her) as she was concerned I could be seriously injured; and yes I was injured, but only ONCE! By the time I was 12 years, I could make my own clothes. I knew that I wanted a career around this amazing machine. I however missed to join campus to pursue my dream career by 6 points! Back then, we didn't have many options, especially in interior design...

I pursued a different career in administration for 12 years, while practicing design as a hobby. I was however quite unsettled, administration just wasn't me. Fortunately, I later managed to enroll for part time classes while still working in the field of administration. It was not easy, but worth it... because finally, I took an about-turn and pursued my first love, interior design and Magnificent Interiors was born. Initially I ran it on a part time basis, but now I run it on a full time basis.

Am I happy? Yes! Do I love what I do? Totally! It's amazing to wake up each morning to do what I love! My family? I cannot thank them enough for all the support they gave me as I made the transition! Was I scared when I made the transition? At first yes, but I had made a decision not to quit! Do I thank God? Yes, every day I do!
