To me success means being able to achieve goals and targets that one sets for themselves with hard work, self confidence and consistent effort. I was passionate about becoming a doctor and I successfully obtained my MD degree. I moved to Italy and successfully established my own business there in 1995. While being in Italy, I wanted to provide my family an even better lifestyle so I, along with my family, moved to Canada. I started working for Petro Canada and subsequently worked in different companies like Mazda, Sears and Lazy-Boy Furniture Gallery but I was not satisfied with what I was doing. I felt that I was not effectively using my talent, skills and abilities. I felt that I could do much more than this. In 2010, I decided to upgrade my education and joined the Gerontology program at Humber College. Humber has a unique way of teaching and enhancing the confidence levels of its students, and each and every single one of the teachers/professors has an amazing teaching style. Out of all the professors that I had the chance to interact with, Professor Dolores Ellerker had the most impact on my life. I learned so much from her. I feel honoured to say that I was her student and I can say with ease that she is a treasure for Humber College.
During my study period at Humber, I got an email from Professor Linda Hill informing me about a job posting in India Rainbow Community Services of Peel. Even today, I am very thankful to her and that email, because ever since then I have been working with India Rainbow Community Services of Peel as an activity coordinator. While working, I have also been actively involved in the community. I am currently an active member(volunteer) of the Bramalea Community Health Centre and an volunteer for Cancer Research Project for South Asians.
To conclude this little story about my life, I would like to say that a person can and should always strive to improve, and that there is no set age after which learning is not possible.
