YourStory: Please tell us in brief about yourself and Silver Linings
Preeti: I started out as an Aerobic instructor (the first blind person to have taken this on as a career), and simultaneously worked as a Computer and English teacher. I have also been a Sales and Marketing manager, a freelance journalist, a public speaker, a fund-raiser and a disability rights activist. Today, I have my own organization ‘Silver Linings’, as well as a superb job plus I am a consultant with a number of reputed NGOs. Along with my various professions, I am now an established Corporate Trainer, and am beginning to make a place for myself in this competitive field too.
Silver Linings started with a mission to train, inspire and facilitate everyone, especially disabled and help under privileged women find their own place in the world and move towards complete empowerment and success. I am a proud mother of two children and a very happy grandmother of one. I have a wonderful husband, a loving family, a beautiful home and great friends.
YourStory: What are the challenges you seem to be facing?
Preeti: I feel challenges are there all the time. One of the biggest challenges I face is that people very often disappear while I am still talking to them, and am left talking to the empty space! Just laugh about it and move on. Well, cant think of any others at the moment that I have not found ways out of.
YourStory: How does it feel to be the winner of Dr.Batra’s Positive Health Award? Do you think an Award like this makes a difference? Has it impacted you in some way?
Preeti: It makes me feel great and honoured to have got the Dr. Batra’s Positive award. It has enhanced my self esteem and I feel encouraged to go ahead in life to fulfill my mission with greater zeal.
I feel it is important to get such prestigious recognitions. Also, am now able to reach out further.
YourStory: Any message for the others
Preeti: “Never give up. Learn and grow from your failures and keep dreaming all the time!”
