Overcoming Mediocrity - Volume VIIIFEARLESS WOMEN
Sofia Husnain is a registered nurse, entrepreneur, speaker and holistic wellness coach. Sofia immigrated to the United States with her older sister and mother at the age of eleven. Always curious and passionate to learn more about the human body, Sofia chose nursing as her career. However, while in nursing school, she was diagnosed with a chronic, debilitating, degenerative and life-long disease, which changed the trajectory of her life forever. After trying and failing many different clinical trials and protocols, the options of continual treatment were quickly fading. The miracle came as her friend – also a nurse – one day introduced her to a system of natural and holistic products. Reluctantly giving holistic medicine a chance, she was amazed at how quickly her body healed from the inside out. Although her illness has no cure, Sofia saw the possibilities and the potential of what educating the community about holistic health can create. Her passion is now to serve and educate her community on their health and body and to empower and equip them with the right tools to get started. She became part of a company called Yoli, which has created thousands of testimonials of men and women getting their life and health back. Sofia focuses on educating others on how the body naturally behaves and how to simply just keep that foundation strong. Her mission is to spread her education and find other “wellness warriors” looking to join her cause. Sofia is married and the mother of an eighteen-month-old baby girl. She enjoys the flexibility, time and financial freedom of being an entrepreneur, as well as the ability to watch her daughter grow and be fully present in her life. Sofia’s own personal struggles have allowed her to connect with others on a much deeper level. In hindsight, her lifelong illness is actually her biggest blessing.

Her story is about self-discovery and relentlessly pursuing the life you believe wholeheartedly can be yours.
