“People have been asking me why I have spent a fortune on people I don’t know, but they never knew that I am a beneficiary of such a gesture in life.

My upbringing has really influenced my quest to put a smile on other people’s faces. Therefore, instead of throwing a lavish party I asked my well-wishers to contribute what they wanted to give me as birthday presents to what I have planned to do to my patients and that was how I did it without much stress,” she said.
