Exclusive —Interview with Desziree Richardson
Today we’d like to introduce you to Desziree Richardson.
It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
London, United Kingdom(atal hind)My name is Desziree Richardson, and I come from humble origins; born and raised on the tiny island of Anguilla in the British Caribbean and now living in the UK. As the fourth child in a large family, I was used to seeing my mother struggle to guarantee a life for her children. Despite her best efforts, it became unclear that some girls were unrecognized because they did not come from a family in the right tax bracket; that girl was me. Despite the many praises for my many revolving talents and abilities, they were unfortunately deemed insufficient in the wrong circles, which left me feeling unworthy. Even though I was living without life comforts, my experience as a child was cheerful and playful. However, these youthful experiences have shaped me into the person that I am today. They have grounded me and opened my eyes to the various realities of life and life as a woman. And for an exceptionally long time, I’ve always had a passion for seeing the continuation of women’s empowerment, a passion for seeing women at their best, their boldest, and their brightest. As such, I feel an undeterred passion for sharing light on women and girls using my platforms, Women of Heart Awards, Face of Woha, and Women of Heart Foundation, to empower more love, kindness, harmony, and gratitude in the world. I believe the world we live in could become more beautiful if everyone was thinking positively and sharing positive energies every day.
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
Having taken counsel with my universal inner voice, God took control. My destiny was to improve my livelihood. In 2008 I headed to the United Kingdom to pursue a media degree and career. Despite moments of self-doubt, obstacles, dark clouds, and poor judgment, they seem to be at work. This dream encapsulates my history and the fears that sometimes continue to cast a dark shadow over my present and future. I believe with the right guide, I had overcome the self-sabotage that has dogged me for years. 2020 has been a challenging year for all of us. As a single parent at home, raising three young kids, working, studying, teaching, and setting up and managing my online businesses were some of my significant challenges. My experience had given me the strength to overcome the obstacles that I had no control of. Therefore, with a host of challenges I was facing and resolving, the creator has played an essential constructive role in my life. However, I can still witness full power as the icy hand of fear, particularly fear of success, draws me back. Moreover, I have somewhat managed to resolve some while others tenuously linger fully. I realize that I had to venture into the world and find a new place to become the person I am meaning to be, allowing the universe to recognize my talents and reconcile my inner world with my inner potential. I was able to launch a few brands, including

Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
I will consider a great deal of success is to change lives and inspire countless others to become successful by sharing your wisdom and story. When someone can say to thank you because you have saved my life is a formal way of saying this is a success. I believe success is not defining as how much money you have in the bank, how many countries you are traveling to around the world, or how many mansions you live in; it should be about the legacy you are building and the lives you making a difference in. Moreover, I believe success is true to our values, dreams, and aspirations as we continuously shared among others to give hope and admiration so others can take a bold step and a leap of faith to conquer our endeavors. To accept life’s imperfections and to believe that you can become great because there is greatness in everyone. However, such belief will help us establish ourselves in many ways by thinking that great things can happen. However, success is when we break the ice to empower better working relationships among humans and to advocate for positive healing with love and support on the planet. Moreover, there are so many words that I can relate to when it comes to success. However, things happened for a reason; when we use our experience and life imperfections to push us to the next level by overcoming the challenges that we had no control of is an excellent
What’s next for you?
