I have been a career-oriented woman always striving for perfection and had a burning ambition to become a trailblazer. Despite an average Indian woman’s stereotypical responsibilities that I was loaded with, the flame within me to become a woman of substance remained ablaze.
I had completed my Chartered Accountancy (Inter) however responsibilities called and led to a break in my career. However, I had begun tutoring the neighbouring children on various subjects and raising their bars in academics. That was when I realised my love for children and passion for teaching. That moment was a turning point in my career as I rowed my boat towards the port of teaching. I completed my ECCED degree and B.Ed degrees and today, I stand with a decade of experience in teaching at Primary and Secondary level (ICSE Board). Throughout my teaching journey, I always maintained a great personal rapport with my students. During this period, I painfully realized that many students were clueless about their career interests and aspirations. Many children were unaware of their potential and their aptitude, which slowly created a whirlpool of confusion and anxiety in their minds as they moved towards completion of their schooling.
With years of experience, I was very confident of identifying the career streams that would be in consonance with their personality, interests and potential. I wished to help the students and the parents not merely as a middle school teacher, but as a professional career advisor. This eventually inculcated the desire within me to take up career counselling as a profession.
