The businesswoman recounts that she was shocked when she got the approval on the 4th of June but could not start immediately due to the need for proper planning.

And when she got to planning, she opened up about some difficulties she faced.

We could not find a stadium up to 400 meters. We had to go back to the drawing board. However, none of these difficulties influenced the final design or process.
It in fact made me search deeper and brought out the best of me."
