"Life is not easy, people just talk, they don't know. I could be the president's or king's daughter and I will still be going through something. Money is not everything," she emphasised.
Thicky Sandra, who has established her own cosmetic line, was quick to credit her parents, for their unwavering support in propelling her entrepreneurial journey.
"They are the force driving my success, they are the ones who pushed me to this level that I am to even start my cosmetic line," she acknowledged, shedding light on the positive influence her family has had on her career aspirations.
While her family's financial standing has certainly afforded her certain luxuries, Sandra disclosed that she has never boarded a matatu.
