‘The costs for good health care brought a lot of financial strain on my business. I was not willing to lose staff again, after the effects of Covid-19. So, I have kept the studio open and allowed the staff to continue to service our clients while I try and get my health together.

‘It has been tough, but I believe I will recover and continue to make beautiful garments.

‘I will beat this. I have beat almost every obstacle in the past.’
