There is something about being around inspirational women, that does exactly what it should; it inspires us. Meet Sonia Huang a graduate from the University of Technology Sydney and now a very successful Operations Manager in one of a well known food industries company in Malaysia. However, her most proudest achievement is having her gorgeous daughter, Christelle aged nine.
What do you and your daughter, Christelle enjoy doing together?
We enjoy watching TV together and just enjoy each other’s company. Definitely not until her school homework is done! I love it when she lays on her bed in the morning while drinking her bottle of milk. These are the simple moments that I treasure the most!
What is the best part about being a working mother?
I never wanted children before and I enjoyed my free
time for that, but now after having Christelle, I would have never in a million years to change it for the world. Having her makes me love my work even more! I think it is important for my
daughter to see that women can work. I would be worried for losing my own identity if my only job is to take care of my kids.
What are the challenges you face being a working mum?
I have to admit that I would love and prefer more time with my daughter. I am blessed to have a boss that understands my situation and allows me to have a fairly flexible schedule. I occasionally have long meetings too and with that I would have to arrange for someone to pick up Christelle from her classes. Another challenge for me as a working mum is to give her the best of me. I am talking about being an example of courage, truth, honesty and strength to her. When she gets older, I want her to understand that eventhough I am working, sacrificing my time to be with her, I was giving her all my love to her. She changed my life and now is my inspiration. Now, I am trying to do my best to keep
her happy and at the same time to create a loving and warm family for her.

Tell us about your family portraits and glam photography session with Louis. What was it like?
The family portraits shoot was really fun and relax. No pressure of being in front of the camera at all! For the glam photography session, I would never have imagined myself feeling like a supermodel and I did. I love the experience that I gained from the shoot!
What does the photos mean to you?
Never in a million years that I would imagined to have such beautiful photos. Photos never grows old, how nice it is to look at my pictures, preserving my youth when I get old!
