Q and A with Shamile from Trinidad
“My major challenge in life was dealing with infidelity.”
Q: What are you passionate about?
A: I am passionate about helping couples and individuals find healing after infidelity.
Q: What were your younger years like?
A: I grew up in a single-parent home and as such I was extremely poor; however, my mum did her ultimate best to ensure that I received a great education. We lived in the “hood,” and mental health wasn’t a focus long ago, so I had to deal with a lot of verbal bullying. I suffered from low self-esteem and depression for many years. My major challenge in life was dealing with infidelity. However, the strength of my mum despite dealing with her own struggles pushed me into my purpose.
Q: What is something valuable you’d like others to know?
A: I believe it’s important to always test the temperature of your heart to ensure its dripping with love. Most times, we especially, as women, try to change men without understanding that we can’t change anyone, only God can. If someone truly loves God, the love trickles down to self-love. And by extension, unconditional love.
Q: What does feminism mean to you?
A: I totally believe in the equality of men and women. Long ago, women were excluded from particular activities and conversations; however, we are in the 21st century and women are as capable and independent holistically.
