A message from Sadia

I believe that who people are is more important than what they have done. My past and present have certainly proved that no matter what you go through you can and will achieve anything if you commit to your dream. I moved to the UK from Sierra Leone at 16, trained as a cancer nurse initially but have held other roles in business over the years until I became the proud founder of beingU in 2008. Personal challenges have delayed bringing products to market but believe me, I am more passionate than ever.

My daughter is my main inspiration for the beingU brand and I am determined to ensure she grows up in a world that celebrates women of all shapes, shades and sizes.
