"I feel that being so young starting my own business,
from something which I loved so passionately (Henna and Make-up), with hardly
any guidance and support, I was able to show women, especially young women of
ethnic background, that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. With
effort and determination you can achieve great success. Being a Welsh Bengali

in achieving one's dreams".
