I first met Rachel in 2018 here in Samoa at the Rise2025 Women in Leadership Event...ever since then I have followed and kept her in my reach.  In 2020 I reconnected with Rachel while doing the Rise2025 HIWA e-commerce business course and is how I started my whole e-commerce journey.  She is a big reason why I am here...online, doing e-commerce, and writing blog posts!!  Never in my wildest dreams had I imagined myself doing any of these 3 things 3 years ago!

In October 2021 she asked me to be interviewed for her #RealTalk online series and I jumped at the opportunity to talk with Rachel again.
