From January 2020 up to today, and expected to go into the future, we have experienced a seemingly never ending series of negativity due to the pandemic. Schools are forced to cancel face-to-face classes, businesses are in peril of inevitable closure but most of all, a lot of precious human lives were taken because of the 2019 Coronavirus. Now that a lot of us are still in the stage of adapting to the new normal, a new strain of virus emerged to threaten the health of the people. Is this a further set back, or is this something that shows the world that they MUST adapt and change?
We will try to shed some light during these dark times by showing hope and inspiration from entrepreneurs who bounced back from their low moments in life.

From then, Grace constantly strived to find innovative solutions for gaps within the marketplace, and this has certainly paid off. Dedicated to the health lifestyle, she also created an app SHREDDY which offers workout and meal plans that are tailored to your goals and preferences. From food to exercise, Grace also became an expert in producing fashionable activewear TALA, which came from 92% of reused materials, factory offcuts and even plastic bottles.

If you have an idea, go with it, build it, plan it, make it, try it.
The only thing to guarantee failure is not trying.
