Now that it is already the start of the second half of the year, we couldn't help but feature a mum who would definitely wow and catch your breath. We definitely want to make a good and lasting first impression for the second half! As you all noticed, our growing list of Supermoms is getting more and more interesting. We need not only feature mumpreneurs but also mums who have impeccable talents and skills. Talking about impeccability, meet our awe-inspiring, breath-taking mummy: Sophia Ng.
May God bless the works of her hands as Mummy Sophia has an inimitable gift in creative design that she showcases on her website, The Impeccable. She works as a full-time creative designer and a mother to three (in her own words) "absolutely lovely monsters," namely, Scarlett, Seraphina and Sheldon. Being a mum for almost five years, it never seemed to bore her as she enjoys each moment she gets to spend with her children. She also loves reading and fashion, but most of all, she loves baking with her kids.
In Greek, Sophia is "Sophos," which means wisdom. As a mother, Mummy Sophia shows how wise she is through the decisions that she makes. Truly, a woman of substance. Read her interview below and be inspired:

How do you view mothers who work/stay at home? Mothers who work, they give up a lot and mothers who stay at home, they give even more.

Mummy Sophia also added, “My children have made me understood the importance of what matters and what doesn't. My aim in life is to teach them that being happy is the best thing that they could do for themselves. “
