  • S8-E9: Afi Sulaiman

    Artist & Illustrator, Malaysia

    Malaysia

    Afi is a millennial who was dabbling with digital art when she was in her gap year. At that time, she was undergoing mental health issues and looked towards art as a form of therapy and self-expression. Little did she know that this path would propel her into the limelight and now she is a commissioned artist who works with corporate companies, small businesses and individuals.

She experienced itchiness to hot flushes, coupled with frustration and sleepless nights. But from the depths of despair and a desire to figure things out came an "aha!" moment, a turning point that ignited a mission: to empower women on their own perimenopause and menopause journeys.
