“As a young girl, I was an introvert, shy and had no self- confidence. I did not have the courage to mingle with people. Everyone around me thought that my fate was to marry someone and stay at home. They thought that marriage and being dependent on my husband would be all I would be good for.
I chose to defy this myth. Marriage changed my life for good. I was lucky to find an incredible life partner. He helped me realize my true potential and made me believe in myself. I felt complete and confident for the first time.
I changed from an introvert, who feared socializing, to an independent entrepreneur, who deals with sellers every day. There are very few women in my field and it doesn’t faze me.
I have pushed my boundaries on all fronts of life. From hiding behind the curtains of low self-esteem to standing with assurance about my work, I have come a long way. I feared mathematics as a child, but today I maintain my financial accounts myself. As a teenager, I enjoyed music but did not have the guts to even hum. Today, I have topped the state level music examination.
All of these positive changes would not have been possible without the constant support of my husband. He helped me transform from a shy housewife to a successful businesswoman.”
