As a child, I found myself enchanted by the magic of transforming spaces. Little did I know that my desire to rearrange my room was a glimpse into my future career in interior design. The allure of making a space feel not just different but truly captivating fueled a passion that would become the cornerstone of my professional journey.
However, like many, I initially strayed from my passion in my pursuit of a career. It wasn't until my late 20s that I decided to embrace what truly ignited my soul—interior design. With no formal degree, I faced the daunting challenge of entering an industry that often prioritizes academic credentials.
Undeterred, I took matters into my own hands. I became a self-taught aficionado, soaking up knowledge from experts in the field. Hours were spent researching and honing the skills and software necessary to carve a niche for myself in the competitive world of interior design.
The turning point arrived when I secured my first client—a three-bedroom apartment awaited my artistic touch. Nervous yet confident in my natural design ability and the business mindset cultivated over the years, I embarked on a journey that would validate my decision to follow my heart.
A particularly heartwarming moment etched itself into my journey when I designed a surprise party for my great-grandma. This experience not only deepened my connection to the profound impact of design on personal experiences but also planted the seed for the inception of my interior design firm, SACRED SPACE.
Today, as the founder of my own firm, I stand as a testament to the power of passion, resilience, and self-directed learning. From childhood dreams to the realization of a thriving career, my story is a testament to the belief that it's never too late to embrace your true calling and turn your passion into a profession.
