But I was able to become a well-known person in the social media. People naturally assume that those who have achieved success in life are those from wealthy backgrounds, but I needed to tell the world that you don’t necessarily have to come from a wealthy home to become successful, as I was not brought up with a silver spoon but today it feels good to be richly blessed...
