Accepting and understanding yourself are the first steps to overcoming your weaknesses to become a confident woman. The debut of Her World Live! at Westgate opened the engaging discussion with valuable takeaways.
They came, they shared and they truly inspired us.
Welcome to Her World Live! – one of Her World’s signature events and part of our initiative to start insightful conversations that matter to women.
Hot on the heels of Her World Rally in June – an intimate space for a panel discussion and conversations – the inaugural Her World Live! presented by Westgate on Aug 31 stepped up to a bolder atmosphere, for us to aim high, dream big, and harness the power of women.
The big topic: how to overcome your limitations, and be conﬁ dent of who you are, and who you can be.
On the Her World Live! panel roster were three highly successful entrepreneurs – Shireena Shroff Manchharam, founder and principal image consultant of Sheens Image Consulting; Jeneen Goh, founder of digital marketing agency, 21 Stories; and Ang Jinyuan, founder of dress rental brand, Style Lease, and bridal rental platform, The Ivory.
Moderating the discussion was Her World’s editor, Ng Yi Lian, along with Her World’s publisher, Eileen Chia, who opened the highly anticipated event.
Addressing the audience, Yi Lian said: “Even though we live in this social media age of perfection, we’re still very much the same as before. We still have our personal struggles, insecurities, self-doubt and family issues. Just because it’s not seen on social media, it doesn’t mean they don’t exist.”
The panellists shared their success stories, challenges they faced and soul-crushing moments in their lives and careers, that got them where they are today. From being “lost” in their 20s to growing up as the awkward kid, and being told to leave the job, their setbacks in life have become the premise and motivation for their success.
You can be inspired by the mum-next-door with four kids, who goes to work, keeps it all together, and is a wonderful person. Find the rock of confidence inside of you.

I set small goals, and I also have big goals. If the big goals are so far away, it helps to set small goals. If you feel you can’t win big goals, win today. And, if you win every day, you’ll get there.

It is said that confidence is being comfortable with discomfort. For example, if you’ve done something and feel embarrassed about it, these emotions can be internalised – it isn’t judgment on you.
Ng Yi Lian, editor of Her World
Confidence is usually built around acceptance. When you can’t accept something, it’s hard for you to move on. Accept not only your strengths, but your weaknesses too.”
