This February, all month long, we’re honouring the work of 28 inspiring leaders. Women who are drawing upon and celebrating their culture while making a lasting difference in their community using their gifts. From authors and teachers, CEOs to entrepreneurs, not-for-profit directors, artists, and more, these women are changing the face of leadership.

These are truly women to watch and veza community is so pleased to share their brilliance.

May their stories inspire YOU to rise.

Meet Parry Khunkhun.

Parry is an image coach and certified hair and makeup artist who provides a fully holistic approach to personal styling and image consultancy. Her method combines powerful life coaching skills with an understanding of self-image psychology, and she is passionate about guiding women to discover the power of positive self-image and expression.

She describes herself as being mature and candid, and she has a strong sense of integrity. Every day, she works hard to improve herself and her unique skill set, striving to excel at what she does.

So tell us, Parry: What inspires you most? What motivates you to get up every morning?

I am motivated by the unlimited opportunities available in this world. The possibilities in life are endless when one strives for excellence, which generally involves doing far more than others see as necessary. It takes commitment, perseverance, consistency, hard work, and most importantly, action. Nothing happens until someone does something. It doesn’t take 100 years to reach your goals: if you strive for excellence, you may surprise yourself.

How do you feel that your actions teach or inspire others?

I teach others how to express themselves authentically, how to have integrity, and how to be their best selves. Those are things I try to embody every day in order to experience them, and then share with others.

What is one change you’d like to see in the world?

I would love to see women understand the power of self-expression; to have their own voice and not be held back by their circumstances.

Which of your contributions to date have given you the greatest sense of pride?

I’m not sure! There are so many that I’m proud of.

We hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know Parry! Learn more about her work and stay connected via her Instagram: @BeYou_Image_Coach, or on Facebook: BeYou Image Coach
