A life lesson you learned the hard way
Life isn’t fair at all times, you fall, you break, you will be hurt, but later you will be stronger than before. I learnt the hard way that it's not easy to run a business but with patience, resilience and hard work to build & sustain one.
What gets you excited about life
My passion for what life can offer and what I can learn from it excites me on a daily basis. You can choose to follow the path or carve it yourself & be excited to bloom where you are.
What’s on top of your bucket list
To travel & explore as many different cultures at a personal level to understand diversity.
If you could give one piece of advice to your younger self, what would it be
I’d say find your own voice and don’t be afraid to use it.
One thing you would most like to change about the world
It cannot be limited to one, but if it has to be one. Given the current scenario, I think it would be achieving world peace & banning war weapons across the globe.
An activity that keeps you motivated and charged during tough times
It's important to have a clear vision & stay motivated of what you want to achieve. I motivate myself on a daily basis with positive affirmations and gentle reminders each morning.
What lifts your spirits when life gets you down
An uplifting music has the power to cheer me up when a lot is going on in my life.
Your go-to stress buster
My go-to stress buster is to hit the gym and sweat it out. It helps me clear my mind and remain calm & positive.
