“Whilst I worked for a high-end interior design firm in Surrey as a junior interior designer, I managed my projects and saw a gap in the market. After research and 5 years of industry experience. I found the courage to run my own company - Supra Design.”

And the former Hazelwick pupil is very proud of what she has achieved.

“I work in an industry filled with patriarchy,” she said.
