  • A Story of Rags to Riches: How Mary Turned Pages and Turned Heads...And This is the Story She Wears

    November 24, 2023 2 min read


    "Growing up, I came from a lower-income household. It was just me, my mom, and my nanny. I saw how hard these two strong women have tried to make my life as comfortable and happy as possible. With what little we have, my childhood was so humble. But I can't always get the toys and gadgets that I want. But now that I think back to it, I was happy."

    - Mary, @bookednshelved


           From humble beginnings to a successful influencer, Mary Jun's story is one that inspires and uplifts. Her love for reading started at an early age, with her mother and nanny reading to her at bedtime. This love for books eventually led her to Bookstagram, where she shares her passion for thriller and suspense novels with her followers.

           However, Mary's journey towards success was not without challenges. Growing up in a lower-income household meant that she could not always have the toys and gadgets that she wanted. But instead of complaining, Mary focused on the things that truly mattered - love, quality time, and the joy of learning through reading and music.

           Today, Mary is a shining example of positivity and kindness. Despite her success as an influencer, she remains grounded and grateful for the blessings in her life. When faced with criticism or negativity, Mary chooses to respond with kindness and empathy - a refreshing approach in a world that can often be harsh and unforgiving.

           For Mary, the secret of happiness lies in seeing all the marvels of the world and never forgetting the drops of oil on the spoon. This mantra serves as a reminder to always remain grateful and appreciative, even in the midst of difficulties and challenges.

           So, what advice does Mary have for her followers? Always look for the silver linings, even in the darkest of times. As you work through life, keep your focus on the good, even though it may be faint and barely visible at times.

           And for those embarking on a soul-searching adventure in nature, Mary recommends bringing along Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy trilogy - a timeless classic that speaks to the intricacies of the human spirit and the journey towards self-discovery.

           From her humble beginnings to her current success, Mary's story reminds us to remain hopeful, grateful, and kind - even in the face of adversity.
