The icing on the cake is that I’ll be giving them a makeover as they share their mind-blowing experiences. This will be a platform where they’ll share their unique stories touching on mental health, self-esteem, among other things and I'll remind them that, no matter the difficulties they've gone through, moms can be girls too, yaani, Minji Minji!
