“With all my heart and soul, I decided to take up fashion designing as a sidestream, wherein I was so cautious to have a backup to my passion.
I joined Ethiraj college for a BBA degree and have worked as an HR for all these years.
My dad was only a garments business, but unlikely they were for males exclusively. So I wasn’t able to continue his business after his demise. It was a real shock that my dad was no more and that I had to take up his part in supporting my family.
I did not have a week’s time to console myself that he wasn’t there anymore. Life was a little messy and hectic as well.
I was a first-generation graduate, however, I took up all that came my way. Especially the idea of our boutique, which was later started around 2017. Being a women entrepreneur, life has shown me a lot of journey phases. I have been featured in magazines for my entrepreneurship works as well.
I was more than glad to meet my life partner wherein, who had always supported whatever I ran to him for. When we decided to get married, all I found were hurdles and blocks. One of the most important heartbreaks was the demise of my father-in-law. For time being, we called off the wedding, but the love and fire in us dint leave us, making us think about this for sure this time.
We got married and what we hadn’t been prepared for was – our pregnancy.
This was during the period of the pandemic and when I left my well-earning job to start the boutique and realized that I was pregnant.
Days were so harsh and hectic.
One thing that stood out throughout my thick and thin is my husband, who is my all-time pillar, and my father, who has bestowed me with wisdom. Without him, I couldn’t have taken care of my family, started a business, and more importantly, I couldn’t have had my handsome son.
Challenges keep moving in everyone’s life. The truth behind those challenges is how efficient we are in facing them.”
