In this episode, Kate was joined by Yuri Sinata to share her experience and tips around being a single working parent.
Yuri is a business owner and creator born and raised in Surabaya, Indonesia. She is also a single mother to her son, Kai. Yuri came to the US in 2007 at the age of 24 with no plan, money, very little English and no identity, but she garnered the will and determination to build her life and business in Los Angeles. Through the years, she battled various obstacles: graduating from the Paul Mitchell school, paying her own school fees, opening up a new business after years of working for others, experiencing postpartum depression and healing after a divorce. Having a platform to share this dialogue with others is cathartic for Yuri. She utilises social media to share what she loves: beauty, cooking, health and wellness.
