I had to teach the kids how to sit and speak.
Then I thought, this is no good.

That’s why I started KARAOK.”

I’m still in the process of healing, and I’m really grateful for the support I’ve received from people,” the 31-year-old said.”
So many people have reached out and offered me their support.
It’s amazing to know that even in the darkest times, they’re always there to support me.”
