Welcome to another issue of our interview series, Spotlight, where we feature stories from inspiring women from all walks of life. With Spotlight, our aim is to share experiences, advice, and encourage women the world over to pursue their dreams with passion and dedication.
In this captivating episode, I had the pleasure of speaking with Clarissa Rae Lim, an extraordinary entrepreneur and the esteemed winner of Mrs. Singapore Globe 2022. My encounter with Clarissa took place during the video shoot session for Daughters of Tomorrow's book launch, where she selflessly lent her expertise in hair and makeup. From the moment I met Clarissa, her vibrant energy, genuine warmth, and unwavering confidence left a lasting impression.
As the shoot progressed, we delved deeper into conversation and discovered that Clarissa is not only a master of hair and makeup but also a talented fashion designer. Her remarkable achievements in multiple fields left me in awe. What struck a chord with me was her unwavering dedication to giving back to the community. It was clear that Clarissa firmly believes that a purpose-driven life is a life well-lived, a sentiment that resonates strongly with us at Wolf and Byrd. She has collaborated with Daughters of Tomorrow on numerous occasions, demonstrating her commitment to making a positive impact.
Clarissa's affinity for pageants began in her late teenage years, and it is evident how this experience has shaped her personality and instilled a sense of power and confidence within her. At Wolf and Byrd, we aspire to spread the message of self-empowerment and authenticity, concepts that Clarissa embodies wholeheartedly. This is precisely why I felt it was essential for her to share her invaluable advice with the Wolf and Byrd community.
One particular takeaway from my conversation with Clarissa was her wise counsel to never forget to prioritise oneself. She emphasised that we are our most significant investment and should never neglect our own well-being. These words hold profound meaning, especially for modern women who often juggle multiple roles and responsibilities. As a creative entrepreneur, I found this advice particularly impactful, as founders are responsible for various aspects of their businesses, which can easily become overwhelming. Clarissa's reminder to prioritise wellness resonated deeply with me, as it is crucial for sustainable personal and professional growth.
My conversations with Clarissa was an enriching experience filled with inspiration and wisdom. Her vibrant personality, outstanding achievements, and dedication to giving back have left an indelible mark. I am immensely grateful to Clarissa for sharing her journey and empowering advice with the Wolf and Byrd community, as it serves as a beacon of guidance for those seeking to lead purposeful lives while nurturing their own well-being.
