#LKempowers Series: Episode 2

Hola! Iโ€™m Jo Ann, a full-time working mum to a beautiful 2-year-old daughter. My workplace includes construction sites which looks like a Lego structure.

Have you encountered a struggle recently? Share with us and how you overcame it.

Since young, I am known to my family and friends as a happy go lucky person. However, since January 2018, I was diagnosed with postpartum depression - an unhappy and invisible illness which I never thought I would have.ย 

It took me a year to open up about it, with a positive mindset. My experiences have left me scars, now covered up with an adorable and colorful unicorn tattoo.ย 

Currently, self-love is the utmost priority in my life. Iโ€™ve taken baby steps to recovery from reading to watching and practicing Xandria Ooiโ€™s Happiness Program and indulging myself in fitness regimes. These activities helps me build my self-esteem, and keeps my mind healthy.

On my recovery journey, Iโ€™ve also came to know about Love Knot, a fashion brand that aims to empower women. I love how Melody, the founder and her team extends their warmth and love everytime I shop with them. Also, not to be missed, their tag that comes with every piece of their love, which is a close reminder to myself to always believe in myself and be confident.

I love how my confidence lifts up every time I am wearing Love Knot.

When I look good, I feel good. When I feel good, I learn to love myself more.

What is your secret source of confidence?ย 

For me, I would say Xandria Ooiโ€™s Happiness Program, Fitness & #loveknotOOTD!

If you had one quote to share with our #LKcommunity, what would it be?

โ€œSelf-love is beyond everything.โ€ Why self-love? By loving yourself, you shape your inner self and confidence. Being able to love yourself makes you share the love with the people around you. A heart shape is always what I look for in everything that I do.

โ€“ Jo Ann Lum
