My Mum

My mum always told me that she wanted me to have opportunities that she didn’t have. 

She had an arranged marriage by 17. She got divorced aged 37 when there was still a lot of stigma around divorce in our culture. So many people stood against her but she remained brave and I’m so glad she did. Thank you for showing me that we don’t have to listen to others. That we shouldn’t live our lives based on what other people might say. Thank you for teaching me to break barriers. 

You’ve always told me you wished that you could’ve given me more. I hope you know how much you have given me. Love you mum, thank you for inspiring me.
