Meet Yasmin from Indonesia.
Tell us about yourself in 1 line.
I am a Moslem woman that’s constantly learning by balancing my role as a mother, a wife, and an entrepreneur.
Tell us something most people might not know about you.
I had no idea about what I really wanted in my life until I was 25 years-old.
WHAT’S THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED?
If you are humble, nothing can touch you – neither praise nor disgrace. Because you know who you are.
TELL US ABOUT A TIME WHEN THIS PIECE OF ADVICE CAME IN USEFUL.
There is always a vulnerability that lies in every role one will have because it seems that there is always someone who is smarter, more successful, more loving than I am, especially in the world where many people believe that social media plays a great portion in defining our existence and identity. I find that being humble (which regrettably I still often fail to do) helps me to accept my true self and liberate myself from the burden of getting other people’s approval, which then leads to a significantly more peaceful life.
