Not all dreamers are winners, but all winners are dreamers. Your dream is the key to your future.You need a dream, if you’re going to succeed in anything you do. Here are some details about Jagriti Bahri in her own words, compiled by a senior journalist.
I am Jagriti Bahri, a qualified journalist, turned teacher now. I am passionate about singing, yoga, also have a craze for driving and yes, dream to serve the nation as a politician one day. Born in a small town in Himachal Pradesh, I grew with limited access to resources but always dreamt of making big in life. I was raised in a family where values and principles were sacrosanct. I met my soulmate Vivek in Delhi, after marriage I got the opportunity to live and visit many countries as his job involved travelling across the globe. This gave me exposure to multi-culture society and transformed me to be a flexible and adaptive being. I have been successful in raising a happy family and I attribute this success to my ability to plan, schedule and multi-task. Thanks to my supportive husband and two lovely kids, nothings seems impossible for me to achieve. My mother and mother-in-law have always been my role models and inspiration all along.
After my post-graduation in journalism, I set my eyes on being a journalist and landed in a job with “The Hindu”, a leading English daily in India. However, my desire for something more rewarding motivated me to pursue a degree in teaching and child psychology, I joined as a teacher at Amity International, a leading global education institute. I continue to teach in schools, online portals and at home. Now in London, I am targeting to gain additional qualification in SEND (Special Education Needs and Disability) that would enable me to serve differently abled children.
Teaching gave me a new purpose in life, through this experience, I realised that I could help make a tangible impact in the society. It’s teaching and early education of young ones that define the future of a society and for that matter of a country. I always wanted to serve the society and believe in equal education for boys and girls, this encouraged me to work closely with children of domestic helps and labourers at an leading NGO in Noida OM foundation.
My ultimate goal is to empower the girl child in India through education and making quality education available to children who are deprived of it. It is rightly said “educate a women, and you educate a family” I am confident that this platform will take me places and will prove to be catalyst in achieving my objectives to spread knowledge and awareness through quality education. On the other hand I want to take the initiative to spread awareness of potential threats of internet, social media for today’s youth.
I always had this underlying desire of walking the ramp in my “golden shoes”, after all these years today, my dream is a reality. I am honoured to be part of this promising and glorious platform Mrs. India Universe 2017, organised by Mrs Archana Tomer and Mr Tushar Dhaliwal. Am sure this platform would motivate every other married women to believe in themselves, to dream big and continue to follow their dreams. I believe that if you are being the same kind every day, you will never discover how amazing you could be, so wake up “Dare to Dream and Act” life is full of pleasant surprises!!
