I had a great career. I was diagnosed with Stage 1 HER 2+ Breast Cancer at a very young age—27 years old. It came out of nowhere. Totally unexpected. That turn of events brought me to where I am now. The dream of designing and running my own fashion line. I wanted to dress myself after my surgery and still feel beautiful and that is how AnoOno was born.
"I would encourage myself to choose schools and jobs not to prepare for life or for the next step - but to make choices knowing that schools & jobs are life.
It’s not a means to an end."
"Because that’s the dream right – to have a fulfilling role? And so I thought:
Why not find out what makes other people tick and provide some ideas for other people who are trying to figure out what they want to do.”
