Letting go of fear

Her education was in fashion design but her professional choices led her down a completely different path. “I studied in Malaysia and worked there for a couple of years in public relations and marketing,” she tells me. “The year I returned to Sri Lanka wasn’t a great one for the fashion industry, so I asked myself what else I enjoyed doing.
