I was born in Steel city, Jamshedpur which is one of the most beautiful towns in Jharkhand. I belong to a cultured, middle-class family where good ethics and education were provided to the kids. Childhood was beautiful playing with kids, Durga puja celebration, cycling down, growing plants, and winning contests. My city was very well maintained by Tata"s with the best education, sanitation.
I was good in my studies and extracurricular activities. I studied in TISCO school which with zero charges gave me the best education even a scholarship.
I scored highest in school board in Bengali so won a scholarship. I excelled in extracurricular activities. I wanted to be a doctor but my family did not approve such I did not want to marry early but had to due to family pressure.
I was one of the first few candidates to complete my MBA from NIPM, Kolkata, and got married in between.
Life has never been very easy but I never gave up on my dreams or aspirations.
My modeling career started right after that. I lost around 18 kgs to get featured in the Times of India as the brand ambassador of Inspiration, a slimming company. I had piled on weight after my delivery.
This was the starting and slowly after that, I started getting movies and advertisements. I have done a lot of movies, ads, TVC, advertorials.
Besides this, I am also working as a corporate trainer (for the last 10 years) and achieved almost 20 different certifications. I am an NLP coach, certified from NSDC, DISC, and many more. I coach and counsel both campus and corporate. My coaching and training helped many to do better and to be empowered.
In 2018, I won Mrs. Karnataka Inner beauty and Supermom. I also win many Facebook contests every day and I am a brand ambassador of health, beauty, and fitness products. I have been rewarded by various achiever awards this year from being the best corporate trainer, model to best professional in various forums in India.
I have started writing and it's been widely appreciated. This year I won many prizes in blogging, poems, write up and short stories. My creative writing is available on Youtube, Beyond the box, Mayakatha, and few others on social media. My stories got selected in two books and more are on the way.
I do not believe in paying and winning nor in too much fake publicity. I control my fame to a certain extent.
I have dealt with family misfortune, deaths, stereotyping, bullying, getting rejected, or casting couch but I do not let others bully me. I am empowered to do different and make choices.
I stand by my ethics and integrity.
The sky is my limit and I aspire to start blogging and getting into PR soon.
I also would like all ladies to keep time for themselves. They should find time to pamper and love themselves. Self-love is the key mantra.
Keep dreaming and achieving. Never give up.
Self-love, Persistence, and Patience are the key.
