If you are like me, you will find yourself reflecting on your life’s journey just before or on your birthday. I am officially 28 years old (7th September), and although I don’t feel it, I am really excited about being 28! My excitement has less to do my age, but rather, a state of being. It’s an empowered feeling that is the culmination of numerous life experiences, the joy of living my dreams today and the hope of future achievements. A question that has often lingered in my mind over the last couple of years is… ‘When does a girl become a woman?’ Well, I finally feel that I have found my answer to that question!

‘A girl does not become a woman when she reaches a certain age or starts to dress a certain way, but rather, when she becomes at one with herself.’
