I am thrilled to share my journey from the corporate world to founding SmiiSenses, a venture that is close to my heart & driven by a mission to empower women. This story is not just about a business; it's about resilience, transformation, and the unwavering spirit of turning challenges into opportunities.

After spending several years in the corporate world, I found myself yearning for something more fulfilling. The unforgettable year of 2020 brought the COVID-19 pandemic, halting businesses and causing widespread uncertainty. I, too, was affected deeply. As someone who was comfortably employed, the sudden halt made me reflect on the fragility of our circumstances.

During this time, I came across women, particularly from vulnerable communities, losing their source of income. The uncertainty of the time stripped away their sense of security and hope. Witnessing this widespread despair ignited a spark within me and paved a way for SmiiSenses.

With a clear vision in mind, SmiiSenses; a candle manufacturing setup was born. We produce high-quality, handcrafted candles that showcase the creativity and dedication of our artisans. My aim is to provide employment opportunities to over 100+ women in the next two years, helping them gain financial independence and sense of purpose. SmiiSenses Academy supports this mission by providing training programs to equip our artisans with valuable skills, fostering community growth and empowerment.

From being Employed to creating Employment: A Journey of Growth

Starting SmiiSenses has been a transformative journey for me. The joy of seeing a woman earn her first paycheck, the pride in her eyes when she talks about her work – these are the moments that makes my journey extremely special.

A Call to Action: Start Your Own "Special Journey"

I want to take this opportunity to encourage others and follow their calling. The world needs more entrepreneurs who are driven by purpose and a desire to make a positive impact. If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that we have the strength to overcome adversity and create opportunities where none existed.

So, if you have a dream, take that first step. Surround yourself with supportive people, stay resilient in the face of challenges, and never lose sight of your vision. The journey might be tough, but the rewards – both personal and communal – are beyond measure.

Thank you for being a part of the SmiiSenses community. Together, we can create a brighter, more empowered future for all.

With gratitude,
