Welcome to read my personal/professional journey so far. If you are curious to know how an IIT graduate turned into a Life Coach and Storyteller, then this is the place for you to read further
I started my journey from the humble little temple town Tirupati in Andhra Pradesh. Completed Chemical Engineering from IIT Mumbai. My days at IIT Mumbai, got me interested in research which became my life at that point in time. So it gave me 2 international patents and four technical paper publications in International journals.
But the trending IT profession called me in and I also jumped that craziest bandwagon. It gave me good exposure to life and the world. It introduced me to a new passion called traveling bug. As a result, I became a weekend backpacker. During this travel, met my bestie, who decided to share his life with me. So instead of one backpacker, it became two of us to explore the worlds of technology and travel together. In this long IT journey of 15 years in just two companies, I was lucky enough to make some good friends, who have become as good as my childhood friends.
Then came the best blessing from the heavens in the form of Shravanth, who turned our life just upside down. From a hard-core career woman, I got converted to a blogger, gardener, playmate, and everything to my little one along with being a mommy.
The day, my child started attending the Montessori School, I got to know about the Montessori method and attended the Montessori Elementary training for School assistants to understand the learning path of my child. So, we as a family started practicing Montessori Parenting methods at home. No parenting journey is easy. Every parent will have both ups and downs in their parenting journey. My blog intends to capture those details and provide the tips that we learned along the way with my child, based on Montessori Parenting techniques.
Books and Gardening are my two passions. A day will not be complete for me unless I visit my plants in the garden and read a book. That’s why I decided to write my reviews of the books I liked and read here. Book reviews have taken another larger portion of my blog these days.
But life is not a cakewalk for anyone. The day I lost my father, my child started showing some distress, which we thought would go away with time. Then this pandemic came, which made my child miss his extended family a lot. As a single kid in a nuclear family, he felt very low and alone during the pandemic. We had to step out of our comfort zone to keep him happy and engaged during the lockdown period.
And that’s the time when I started taking a lot of courses on kid’s Mental Health. Now I am a certified child psychologist and Life Coach. I also conduct sessions both online and offline for both the kids and parents. I try to help the parents by being present to hear their parenting struggles and help them by guiding them towards the path of self-discovery with the required tools and techniques.
This page is mainly due to the encouragement of my fellow blogger friends and mentors, apart from my hubby. This captures all my feelings in this new journey and will be my new avatar for a while.
Happy Viewing and Reading. Please spread some love by frequent visits and comments.
