What were your initial years of growing up like? Tell us about your life before starting your corporate journey/venture/initiative.

In my early years, life was a wonderful blend of adventure, learning, and strong family bonds. I grew up in a close-knit family of four, with my parents and my younger sister. My family has always been my pillar of strength, emphasizing the importance of education and personal growth. I was fortunate to have a supportive and loving environment that encouraged curiosity and the pursuit of knowledge.

Before embarking on my corporate journey with Faith Brynels Insights, my life revolved around academics and the values instilled by my family. I was a diligent student, always eager to excel in my studies. My family’s unwavering support was crucial during my formative years. They encouraged me to explore a wide range of interests, from extracurricular activities to volunteering. These experiences played a pivotal role in shaping my perspective on education and personal development.

My parents were instrumental in nurturing my passion for justice and fairness, which ultimately guided my journey towards becoming a barrister. The values of hard work, dedication, and determination were instilled in me from a young age. These values laid the foundation for my corporate venture, Faith Brynels Insights, which is built upon the belief that every student deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential.

In essence, my upbringing in a loving family, emphasizing education and values, served as the cornerstone of my corporate journey. It instilled in me a profound sense of purpose, driving me to create a platform dedicated to empowering students to achieve academic excellence and personal growth. My early years provided me with the motivation and resilience needed to pursue my dreams and make a positive impact through Faith Brynels Insights.

Every industry that is now a large-scale, top-notch business once started as a small idea in the minds of entrepreneurs. What was that idea or motivation that made you start your business /initiative? What motivated you within to say YES, go for it!”

Faith Brynels Insights, rooted in a passion for justice, fairness, and student empowerment, finds inspiration in Philippians 4:13 (King James Version), “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” This biblical cornerstone signifies the initiative’s dedication to transformative education, overcoming challenges, and nurturing a community where each student can flourish academically and personally. The decision to launch Faith Brynels Insights was driven by faith in storytelling’s power, the importance of mentorship, and a visionary commitment that transcends diverse backgrounds, aspiring to equip all students with the tools for success.

Would you like to share with our young budding women entrepreneurs the change you would like to see in the world if given an opportunity?

I envision a world where every woman, irrespective of her background or circumstances, has equal access to education, mentorship, and resources to pursue her entrepreneurial dreams.

Women are a growing force in the workplaces worldwide, standing shoulder to shoulder with their male counterparts. There are cracks in glass ceilings everywhere, with many women breaking through to carve out a space right at the top of the pyramid. What are your thoughts about women leadership today?

The evolution of women’s leadership is a testament to the resilience, strength, and incredible potential that women bring to the workplace. Today, women are not just contributors but trailblazers, leading with vision, compassion, and a unique perspective that enriches decision-making. The cracks in the glass ceiling represent the dismantling of systemic barriers, but there is still work to be done.

What would you want to say to our young women leaders/audience reading this?

Cultivate resilience, viewing challenges as opportunities for strength. Craft your own narrative, breaking free from stereotypes. Remember, you are not just leaders; you are architects of the future. Your passion, purpose, and resilience contribute to a world that cherishes and applauds the incredible impact of women. Remember, it’s not an event; it’s a journey, and your journey can begin now.
