Name, Age & Location:
Tell us a bit about you...
I was born in Essex and moved to Leicester in 2006 to study Dance at University and went on to qualify as a Primary School Teacher in 2013.
I married my husband in 2014, and we had our first child in 2015.
From then on, I have a been a Stay-at-home Mummy and we have since been joined by two more children in 2017 and 2020.
My chapter discusses the difficulties I have faced as a mother and how they challenged my relationship with myself, whilst also looking at the motivation and inspiration my children provide me with for loving my authentic self.
Why did you decide to share your story?
I wanted to write my story for those ladies who may have experienced something similar to me and who may find comfort in being able to say ‘me too’.
Sometimes knowing someone else feels the way you do is comforting and encouraging enough to keep us going.
I’m no where near the end of my own journey, but I also know how much I would have valued knowing I wasn’t alone with my feelings.
Name of your chapter and a sneaky peek...

‘ I was angry. Angry with everyone, with everything, especially myself. I wanted other to prioritise me, to prove my worth, and show me love because I was unable to. ‘

have different challenges and we each deal with them differently.
In the first of what Ana Bonasera, Laura Bland, Serena Novelli

appreciate perceived flaws.

They have now bared their soul to empower, inspire, uplift and support other women.
