1. What would you call the Turning point in your life (How did the idea of getting into this field come about? What made you choose this? And what would you say sets you apart?
I always wanted to be a part of medical science and wanted to have my own clinic. Nutrition science has always fascinated me because I believe we are what we eat. The turning point in my life would be when my dream of own clinic set up will come true and I get a chance to make healthier lives or rather play a role in preventing various disorders. The quality of convincing people in a positive way and motivate them to change their lifestyle for betterment is the quality that sets me apart.
2. In layman’s terms could you please tell me what is it that you do as a nutritionist ?
Layman usually thinks that a nutritionist is a person who restricts you from having your favorite food but its totally wrong. I as a nutritionist guide people regarding their food habits, lifestyle, behavior changes and set up dietary plans and guidelines for a healthier life or in special clinical conditions.
3. What do you like most about what you are doing?
I like each and every part of what I do. But, the most satisfying part is making perfect diet plans and counselling them or rather convincing them to follow it

Success is something when you see a positive change in the client whom you counseled. Success is when you see the happy face of the client who wants to continue his changed life.

To have my own independent recognition in my field is the motivational factor for me.
9. One relationship that helped (Who has been your biggest support in this journey ?)
My father, he has always been my biggest support who has pushed me when I was falling and motivated me to keep going in spite of failures.
10. What is the biggest misconception you think people have about you?
People think that I can not speak what I actually want to. They doubt in my convincing capabilities but I feel that is my strength and I can do that very well
11. What would you say are the top three skills needed to be a successful entrepreneur?
1. Contacts: You need to be seen and known to every person in your field. 2. Opportunity: Good opportunity can take you to great heights if that opportunity is grasped well. 3. Hard work and luck: Working hard is our hand but to be lucky is not.
