As a child, Diwa’s answer to the question, ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’ was always, ‘I just want to be happy’. And now, decades later, she’s pleased to say that she has become better at finding and doing the things that make her smile. The journey to her ‘happy’ has not always been filled with sunflowers, stars and smiles. But every bump, tear, challenge, and fear has helped her see that she never needed to be happy, she just needed to be herself… with a shot of cacao on the side.
