Meet The Store Family - Patience
To celebrate Women's Month we caught up with Patience, who manages our Tyger Valley store.
  • Describe yourself in 5 words?
Passionate , driven , resilient , exuberant and an ambivert
  • Where do you see yourself in 5 years' time?
In 5 years time I see myself as an entrepreneur in different fields such as fashion and  beauty products and growing that business. I have already started with making chunky jerseys at the moment which I sell online via instagram while I work for THE STORE. From instagram , I want to push it to markets and eventually have stores selling my products then having my very own store in a couple of years from now.
  • Who is a woman that inspires you and why?

I know I am only supposed to choose 1 but I have to say that my mom and my younger sister for different reasons . My mom is someone who has gone through a whole lot of trials in her life and trying to raise three kids while at it. She has come up on top and has always pushed through her difficulties, with joy. I get my resilience from her.

My sister has such an entrepreneurship mind that she has pushed me to continuously dream and work towards my dreams. She is only 23 and has her own small business where she bakes and makes amazing gatsby’s that she sells as well .  She is my favourite dreamer.

  • What advice would you give to your younger self?

To not be afraid of anything especially mistakes. People learn through mistakes . Go after your dreams regardless of what people say . I took a long time to figure out what I wanted to do or be because of people’s expectations of me . But when I paused and listened to my heart I figured out what I wanted to do and who I wanted to be . I am still on that journey of discovery . I would tell my younger self to dream and that there are no limits to dreams and nothing is impossible . Believe in yourself young Patience.

  • What is the significance of Women's Day to you?

   Personally , Women’s Day  is a reminder of how powerful, strong and  influential beings women are to this world . In the same breath we celebrate the gentleness, femininity and beauty of women.  It's a celebration of the impact that we have in our different spheres , whether it be work spaces or a home setting.
