The Beginning Of The Journey

Sucheta moved to Mumbai from Ranchi after getting a job opportunity over here. But once she moved to Mumbai she no longer wanted to be an IT professional. She wanted to learn dance and pursue her dreams in women’s fitness training. But for two years she did not reveal this to her parents, thinking what they would say to her. She only told them that it was merely her hobby and that she is doing it part-time.

After that, when she actually revealed to her parents what she wanted in life, to her surprise, her parents took it very positively and supported her with that decision of taking forward her dream.
