Purpose became important to me at the young age of fourteen. At a point when I felt so victim to my experience that I believed there was no point in living, a little voice inside of me told me I had something unique to offer the world.
I directed my attention towards being something of value and decided to become a psychiatrist at sixteen, being fascinated by the mind and its power over our behaviour. Due to an enormous pressure to succeed and be that “something of value”, I rebelled against my own best interests.
I slipped into depression, developed eating disorders, abused alcohol and became recklessly promiscuous. My self-destructive tendencies led me to enter prostitution while I was studying my Bachelor of Biomedicine. During this time, I fell in love with one of my clients which revealed my intense fear of intimacy. Through this revelation, I became aware of my childhood conditioning and sexual traumas. It was a breakthrough.
When I finally graduated, I considered doing a Masters in Neuroscience as I had experienced and investigated alternative ways to alter the mind. However, I became disheartened by how slowly scientific research made progress, and decided to open myself up to the unknown.
“Today I am learning through case studies (outside the clinic), and educating through media creating the impact I desire.”
