As part of their #changedestiny campaign, SK-II shares the inspiring story of Singaporean fashion designer Priscilla Shunmugam. In an emotional video, Shunmugam recounts the turning point in her life, when she left her comfortable job in the legal industry to become a seamstress against the wishes of her loved ones. Her risky move paid off two years after she launched her fashion line, Ong Shunmugam, and she has steadily grown from strength to strength ever since.

Reflecting on her current success, Shunmugam says, “I feel like I have come full circle. I’m in a really happy and peaceful place.”

Her moving story is one of many in skincare brand SK-II’s #changedestiny movement, but each account carries the same important message: Do what makes you happy.
