The Beauty Secrets Behind This Inspirational Entrepreneur
Sali Stevanja looks just like your regular female active-wear entrepreneur — glowing, fit, smart and driven — she's one half of the genius twin-sister duo who launched Stylerunner.com, a leading online destination for stylish international and local brands. "We couldn't find a specific retail store that offered premium, curated activewear, let alone a beautifully presented one that we personally wanted to shop at — so we decided to create one," says Sali. But her path to success hasn't always been as smooth as it seems.
When she was just 27 years old Sali was diagnosed with breast cancer, stage two. With no family history of any illnesses, let alone cancer, it was an incredible shock. After undergoing seven gruelling months of chemo, she still didn't feel right, so she made the inconceivably difficult decision to have a double mastectomy. After this surgery, the doctors found two further tumours. Unknowingly at the time, Sali took actions that ultimately saved her life. Now, several years on, this incredible young woman uses her experiences to fully embrace life and push herself to be the best that she can be.
