Short story about our company
What do you say when your child tells you they don’t like the way they look? or that they want to be taller or have super hero powers? That is exactly what happened to Perfectly You Stories founder Samantha Mosharaf.
“One night at bedtime my son told me he didn’t want freckles. It actually hurt hearing him say those words, I wanted him, like all parents I am sure, to feel happy and confident with who he was. That was when I told him about how I went on an adventure and met dragons and pirates and other magical characters who helped me to make him perfect in every way. We both loved the stories and that is how Perfectly You Stories was created.
With the help of my business partner and friend Romy and the support of our families, we spent over a year developing the stories and characters. Fast forward countless soft play dates (serving as our spiritual offices), and many lessons learnt along the way, slowly our dream began to turn to reality. Perfectly you Stories is proof that “where there’s a will there’s a way.” We hope you and your child will love their story as much as ours did.”
MEET OUR TEAM
I originally trained and worked within the NHS as a registered nurse and later completed a Law degree. Perfectly you stories was inspired by my two wonderful boys, who make me laugh out loud on a daily basis! However, the chance to pursue this idea would not have been possible without the support and encouragement of my husband.
I was born in 1985 and grew up with my family on the Essex/Hertfordshire borders. After finishing high school I travelled to Australia where I stayed for two years in various parts of the country. On my return to England I trained as an engineer and continued to work as such until the birth of my first child. I now live in Essex with my husband and two children. Having always loved reading, the opportunity to write a book was greatly welcomed.
