FWEP0001 Not Everything Is As It Seems - Women in Power Singapore with Genecia Alluora
At an early age of 14 I have learned to face challenges and took on responsibilities due to life’s circumstances.
(3:33)“A lot of people thought that when I was Ms. Singapore they think that I was born with a silver spoon. But it did not start that way I had to support myself through school since I was 14 years old, teaching Yoga, aerobics and line dancing through my school years so I put myself through college I put myself through university so it was really tough.”
Due to a financial crisis, I had to step up and think of ways to support myself and my family. I had to do sacrifices to make it through in life.
(4:20) Because of that I had to come up and do my own stuff and I think that has really molded me through my years and then after that I became an occupational therapist.
(4:53) Back then I was the youngest instructor in Singapore and then I went on to do classes but it was not easy because when I’m seeing other girls doing things in their free time they are going to the movie, going for shopping and then I’m working after school.”
What I experienced during my teenage years gave me a better perspective on influence and how it can be used to empower others.
(6:45) After that I took on these skills, I went on to coach and mentor many women to transform their confidence from being ugly duckling to be more confident and become the better version of themselves.”
As I moved up the ladder and gained success, I realized I needed more freedom and not be bound by time and money.
Process of growth
You need to expand and broaden your horizons to progress in life. You need to invest in yourself too.
(7:38)I worked my way up then I took my vision of helping more women to be more confident and then I started a platform called “You are possible academy” because I launched my own book in 2013, it’s about personal branding then after that I went online.”
I faced the roadblocks in my life. From adjusting to our family’s financial situation to being bullied at school and doing jobs while studying. These situations could have hindered me, but instead of viewing them as stumbling blocks I used them as stepping stones to reaching my dreams.
- Success is not determined by financial status.
- Life’s changes should not stop you from pursuing your dreams.
- Keep learning, keep growing.
- Do not give up on what you are most passionate about.
- Roadblocks are stepping stones.
