It was and is still there in every cherishing moments of life. Even for my first corporate job, I got my first formal suit from Allen Solly. The day I got my first salary, Aditya Birla Group was there too. I gifted myself a classy handbag from Van Huesen .My first gift to my father was from Louis Philippe; it is his favorite shirt now. My credit card still cries while I shop at Pantaloons and Forever 21.I still remember the day when I waited in line for 3 hours just to get into Forever 21 store. Not just my personal life, Aditya Birla Group is also present in my professional life too. Fresh wrap have always kept my office lunch fresh, so that after a half tiring day, I can enjoy my food and get ready for the next half of the day.

How you overcame challenges to achieve your ambitions in life so far?
Struggles in our life help us to grow. It helps us to overcome our fears and learn new things. Strength comes from struggles in our life. Everything which is not in our comfort zone is a struggle for us. When we were kids, waking up early and going to school seemed a struggle for us. Every single day brings us a new challenge and makes us stronger. My struggle also made me stronger and wiser. It was my first time away from home during my Btech days. The mess food was tasteless and fast food seemed to be comfort food then. I started eating fast food daily and without even realizing. I got addicted to this slow poison. And as obvious my body started reacting aggressively and soon my body was warehouse of all diseases. I got serious acne problems, back pain and high BP etc. By that time I was almost 20 kgs overweight. My BMI was disturbing. I realized it was time to get of my cocoon and take care of the scary situation. There were so many things to be done together. Heavy workouts, diet and proper lifestyle, all together posed a major challenge as I was living in a hostel. But I was adamant about the start has to begin. So I enrolled myself for gym and yoga classes. Along with that I consulted a dietitian and she gave me plans to follow. The initial days were really tough as sometimes my cravings for fast food would make me go mad. But slowly and steadily I adopted the new healthy lifestyle. After being consistent for 8 months I was overwhelmed to see positive results in my body. Not only did my weight reduced but I felt healthy and strong from inside too. This struggle not only made me mentally strong but physically too.
