I come from a family of seven siblings. My mother was a heart patient, and I being the eldest, had to cook food for a family of fifty members, that too on the brazier (angeethi).
As time passed, I completed my education and started as a teacher. I did basic learning of cooking and baking around that time but never pursued professional training as I would forbid myself from spending my salary on my desires.
After marriage, I got busy with family responsibilities and motivated my children to excel in all spheres of life.
Finally, during the lockdown of 2020, I realized that I could outshine what I have been doing all my life.
So, I started with my food page on Instagram and created my own YouTube channel. Today, I am professionally baking cakes, brownies, cookies, making ice-creams, and much more. It gives me immense pleasure when people in my city, who purchase my cake, adore the taste.
I wish to leave my mark not just in Agra but all across the country.
I hope to excel in my endeavors. I have struggled to be here, in a position where I can do something I dearly love. Age indeed has nothing to do with aspirations. One can pursue their dream whenever one gets a chance to do so.
I no longer keep my desires behind everyone else’s. My family means a lot to me, and they have supported me through thick and thin, especially with my new venture.
Women are expected to look after their families and, in the process, they often forget about their own goals and passions.
It’s high time that we start telling women to be their own heroes and pursue something that makes them truly happy.
I am contented to have started a legacy for women around me and wish to continue it no matter what!
