“I was a pampered child and my parents gave me everything I wanted. However, life took an ugly turn when my father incurred a huge loss in his business and I had to take the responsibility to support my family financially. I worked as a life coach and taught kids in the oraphanges to build their self esteem. In the meantime I got married and later I discovered that my ex husband had psychological issues as well as a physical illness, he had hid this from me.
We parted ways and started afresh and took all the challenges that life threw at me with a smiling face. It was highly challenging for me as divorced women are still seen with contempt in our society but I didn’t pay heed to what others said. I took the unconventional route and followed my heart’s path.
After some time I decided to adopt a child and convinced my parents too regarding this decision and one day my father surprised me and put a day-old baby boy in my arms. This decision was the turning point in my life and it made me feel more content and confident.
I decided to explore my professional life as well. I succeeded as a trainer, leader, and entrepreneur. By this time, I had also started travelling to many places to enrich my knowledge and explore as much as possible. But life had some more surprises left for me and I met my better half in one of the orphanages while attending an event. Despite being from different cultural and social backgrounds, we connected immediately and the best part was his bond with my son was inexplicably wonderful. He blended with my family so effortlessly that we were bound to be connected.
Now I’m happy to be working as Principal for Orchids The International School, Perumbakam. One thing that my life has taught me so far is no matter how many obstacles you face, life itself shows you the path to overcome them. Life is full of ups and downs, but we need to have a never give up attitude”
