Lesson learned:

“Resilience is a workout.

2018 was a year of extreme highs and lows for me as I balanced my personal and professional life. I realised that I needed to get tougher and be able to bounce back faster. Just like with running a marathon, you have to get fit over time. My resilience is still weak, but it’s only by challenging ourselves and working at it that we can improve.”
