Bhakti, the owner of “Skin Aura” – a skincare centre at Nagpur, comes with a heart-wrenching yet inspiring story. In 2011, when Bhakti was in her final year of M. Tech (Cosmetology), awaiting a bright future ahead, an unfortunate road accident left her with her right side paralyzed, a memory loss, and voice loss.
The entire family was devastated when doctors informed Bhakti would never be able to lead a normal life again. Nevertheless, physiotherapy, speech therapy along with her mother teaching her the alphabets and narrating earlier stories of her life followed. She even started school back from grade KG.
Unlike the doctors’ words, Bhakti started recovering and after three years regained her physical fitness. She started reading, writing, and speaking some Hindi, English, and Marathi. However, in the meantime, her fiancé cheated on her and married another girl, leaving her with another setback. But Bhakti took it in her stride once again.
August 31st, 2016 was the turning point in Bhakti’s life. She met Dr. Rekha Chaudhari who genuinely encouraged Bhakti and treated her like her child.
From November 2016 to March 2017, Bhakti got trained at OLWE. Dr. Chaudhari instructed all trainers and office staff to pay Bhakti special attention. Dr. Rekha’s guidance and support showed Bhakti a new path. She, in fact, topped the class many times. She was, finally, able to talk to anyone with confidence and even travel on her own.
Bhakti passed the course of ‘Assistant Beauty Therapist’, followed by the LPG training in June 2017. At Dr. Rekha’s suggestion, Bhakti’s parents set up their won beauty clinic at Nagpur on October 1st, 2017. Thus, Bhakti started a new journey.
Her learning from her guru Dr. Rekha Chaudhari equipped her to handle various types of skin requirements at their skincare center. In 9 months, they have been able to gather a sizable number of clientele, most of whom have become regular customers.
In Bhakti’s words, “Life is just a game. Play it or lose it.”
Prior to coming to OLWE, Nayana Kherde was a farmer. After hand-holding, mentoring, and free vocational training at OLWE, she was selected by the Enrich Chain of Luxury Salons.
Anuradha is a student from the first batch, who was successfully placed at Four Fountain Spa, Mumbai with a five-figure salary.
Dr. Rekha Chaudhari is a very motivating personality. Her grit and determination is unmatched. Since the day I have known her, she has been an inspiring person who is fully focused on her goals and her way forward. Nothing can stop her from creating her milestones. My best wishes are with her in her journey forward.
