The best thing about being a mother…
Motherhood is joyous. It really is valuable and incomparable. The best part of being a mother is being able to nurture the life you have brought into this universe and provide him a safe space to develop himself to the fullest. For me it is to see him become a kind, responsible and compassionate human being.

Does motherhood change your life perspective…
Life is more precious now. It’s not only me, it’s me, my child and the lives of my dear ones associated with me.

How do you maintain balance between being a parent and your career?
Working hours in the hospitality industry can get crazy at times. My son, however, is able to manage his basic routine of hygiene and complete his assignments. I make sure to check on all these aspects when I get home. Also, we spend quality time on weekends and holidays.

What makes you a wow mom…
Life is full of ups and downs and being a working mother it adds to the challenges but I feel these situations bring out the best in me and help me become a better human. It does get a little difficult to separate time for my child due to work pressures but well that’s the life of a working mom!
