I am the daughter of Ashok Jalalabadi, granddaughter of Qamar Jalalabadi (the famous Bollywood writer) and I was born in Chandigarh India, a small town in the foothills of the Himalayas yet was raised in the Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe where I grew up with a dream to become a world renowned Singer/Song-writer and Pianist. Every little kid’s dream right?
My whole childhood was gearing me up for this one single dream.
I am now sitting in Melbourne, Australia as I write these words to you, on the brink of celebrating twenty years of marriage to my man, with two grown boys who are now venturing outward to achieve their own dreams and I’m quite literally blown away by the journey travelled this far. It’s come with blood, sweat, tears and more tears. There have been moments of deep despair, broken heartedness, fear and anxiety yet also incredible joy, laughter and a strange satisfaction in my inability to be satisfied at what has been accomplished. There remains a longing for so much more.
I am thrilled that I get to venture into the “so much more” with you. My journey travelled has now become a story I tell purposed to inspire, motivate and spur you on as you face your own path consisting of blood, sweat, tears…joy and laughter. This is where Motivational Artistry kicks in. A beautiful marriage between motivational speaking and music.
Where life itself tells the story.
