More than a pretty face
I’m Smitha Deepak,
This is my story.
There’s always that one person who builds you, molds you into who you become. For me, that’s my grand father. I miss him; he was my rock, my shade while growing up.
When the odds were against me, when I couldn’t find the courage to go after my dreams he was there to support me, cheer for me and to make me believe in myself.
When I was 17 years old, I got a taste of the tough world, with all the backs turned on me, with no support from anyone, it was time to buckle up and get my first taste of independence, a taste of entrepreneurship.
I was left with the choice to give up and accept my fate or face my challenges. With a bruised heart and a tough mind, I was ready to face the world.
I had to financially support myself in order to pursue my dreams, something I learned from my grandparents. My first venture was an art workshop for children, and it gave me a taste of success that still drives me.
