Here is someone who loves to talk, loves to take pictures, loves to be in photographs, loves to tell people all that I am doing , where I go , what I see and so this Blog is a humble try to celebrate my life with you. I have been very consistent and regular on social media … but now I am hoping I will be on this Blog more regularly.
So, here’s my story…
I am settled in Canada now, but originally from India. I am an International Art of Living Teacher and I have been conducting Art of Living workshops. It is this responsibility that allows me to understand the dynamics of the community very insight-fully. I think I am a deeply philanthropic person who is engaged in different roles in the community.
I am the proud founder of a non-profit organization WINGS (Women’s Initiatives to Nurture, Grow & Support) … and why do I say proud? Because WINGS is a chunk of my life now and a dream come true experience of this lifetime…..
Having worked in my prior role as a Job Developer for women who have experienced domestic violence or been through turbulent relationships, I started responding differently to “women” in general. I soon assumed the role of inspiring them to be articulate, work on and achieve their own goals using creativity, enthusiasm, out-of-the-box thinking and dynamic leadership. I recognized the great contentment in encouraging these women to excel, define and reach their goals by working through their barriers in a systemic way. A new immigrant myself, I knew their hurdles and I so wanted to be a pillar of strength to other immigrant women.
In my present professional role I am a Placement Advisor in Humber Business School, and my mission here is to help students recognize and reach their highest potential.
In my role in WINGS (Women’s Initiatives to Nurture, Grow & Support) of Canada, I sit in the Board of Directors, and I am so excited excited to merge my passion with a vision, to create empowering events for women in Toronto.
It all started In September 2012 when I hosted “WE: Women Empowerment” event which received much acclaim from all the participants. Being encouraged I took a step ahead, in 2013, for International Women’s Day I dared to organize “Celebrating Womanhood” event. That evening saw four women heroes of the community being honored, along with 3 motivational speakers and a host of women attendees.
And that is where WINGS started.
In March 2018 WINGS celebrated a Women’s Expo that showcased 80 women entrepreneurs who showcased their home-based business.
I want to use blogging to connect to other women and grow as a human being in my journey. I have learned that mentors are invaluable in my own life, and that mentoring others has been one of the most fulfilling experiences I have found. I love to see how women can promote each other and acknowledge one another, regardless of age or cultural differences. I also believe that of the many ways we can support other women in our lives every day, is through social media.
To add on, I love to travel, have fun with my girlfriends, teach, sing, smile and serve, and I strive to to put the smile back on every face that I meet.
Once again Welcome To My Blog!! Thank you for being here….
