Say something about your beginning
Childhood has been very challenging as dad was hospitalised for 5 years due to brain cancer. Mom supported us by taking up a job after he expired to support my studies. Learnt a lot at a very tender age and took up responsibility at the age of 9 of my brother. Got married at 22 years with 3 miscarriages in the span of 15 years. When I last miscarried, I lost the will to live. But, I fought all odds and started designing as a passion. The passion later turned to a full time business called Gyany customer solutions. During all my years, I have gone though numerous hardships at family and business front. Gone in to severe clinical depression in 2014 with no hope to survive. Bed ridden for 6 months and severely ill, I somehow emerged a winner out of it. Did not succumb to the illness, fought with lot of willpower and strength from mom and husband. Finally overcame all odds and today successfully running the show. During the entire journey, have learnt a lot from experiences and implemented in daily life. Totally a self made person.
