A Palestinian refugee has revealed how she became a self-made millionaire — after overcoming homelessness and launching a med spa franchise from her New York City apartment.

Fatema Love spent most of her early years “homeless and hungry” before she and her family fled Palestine during the country’s war with Israel.

However, after she came to America at the age of 15, things didn’t get much easier for the businesswoman, as she said she struggled to “connect” with those around her.

But Fatema’s rough past put a “fire under her ass” and inspired her to “work hard” to ensure that as she got older, she could have a better life.
