Mrs. G Juneja
- A Brief about yourself and how you describe your own Personality and Persona.
Confident, amiable, spiritual, adventurous, fitness freak and a diehard optimist with a generous heart & a dash of creativity are the words that lend support to throw light on my attributes, but the layers of my personality can be unleashed by enumerating the roles I shoulder upon. Donning many hats like being a loving mother of two beautiful daughters nurturing them with values and ethics to make them better human beings and being a loving wife, a caring and supportive daughter and daughter in law and a true friend in need. My professional curve too is a well molded one as I began my innings as a banker (ICICI Bank) after MBA and then switched over to now being a psychologist (MA psychology). My giving up of my flourishing banking career to look after my daughters had been a blessing in disguise as I utilized the bestowed time to follow my dream of being a clinical psychologist and also to fulfil my passion of writing and become an influencer. Being born to a loving Punjabi family I had lived mostly in Punjab and majority of my schooling and higher studies had been done in the city beautiful Chandigarh and I got married there only. Now we have been relocated to Gurgaon due to work commitments of my husband. An elder daughter who always was trained to be a go getter with a firm faith in grit & determination and an ardent believer that everyone is special and unique, aids me to bring to the table these values to help others in need. A journey till now with ups and downs with every up leaping me to great heights and every down enriching me to be my better self.
- Your Achievements that makes you feel high.
Achievements are the milestones which aspire us to unleash our true potential. As a banker I got the “Change Agent” trophy due to my implementation of many pilot projects in my branch such as Five S and Siebel. Being rated 1 in all the years of my banking career uplifted my career as well as my morale. Now I am receiving accolades from people who are following my articles on my page “Mirror Musings” written to help them on child abuse, autism, anxiety and child issues like blue whale and how to deal with it and lifestyle issues. This motivates me to write and influence. Shortly I am going to be launching my YouTube channel to convey speeches on mental health. But above all this one achievement I’m really proud of when I took decision of giving priority to my daughters and family over my flourishing career and it makes on the top of the world when my daughters call me best mom ever.
- Define the true beauty.
Nature and intention of a person defines true beauty. True beauty is skin deep and relates to the aura one carries thereof due to his or her deeds. Soul represents the true beauty as it is everlasting. A beautiful mind who thinks good about others , a warm heart which gives blessings to all and kind hands which gives plenty to the unprivileged ones constitutes true beauty which glows within.
- What makes a complete, healthy and happy family for you?
It’s been rightly said that a family that eats together stays together. Sharing each other’s day happenings helps everyone in the family to bond with each other over healthy and sumptuous food. Happy family constantly makes efforts to spend quality time with each other and nurtures each other through exchange of encouraging words in difficult times, through inculcating and enforcement of right values and principles and last but not the least by being there for each other unconditionally.
- What is your favorite Idea of Holidaying?
I am a well-travelled person who always want to go on covering the world as it propelled me to learn about people and culture at other places in the world. As a person who always had quest for spirituality, earlier I would think only place is important for best holiday, but my bent of mind changed when I discovered that it’s not the place which is important for having best holiday but the right state of mind that is when you feel calm and at peace. One can be sitting amidst the most scenic and serene beauty but still not at peace, thus keeping happiness at bay. I personally feel peaceful and happiest with my family and loved ones, being in healthy body and minds where we eat, love and pray together wherever that might be. That’s my idea of a holiday. On the top of it if I could learn about other people and their culture ,that becomes icing on the cake.
- Why you are participating in Mrs India Queen of Substance?
Mrs. India queen of Substance has the credibility of being the best pageant for the married woman as it is fair and provides further opportunities to present our country on International platforms. Being a patriotic I would love to represent my country and do it proud. Secondly this platform would help me to be a role model for others and would provide innumerable opportunities to me as I want to reach out more people as a psychologist through writing and through YouTube helping them with their problems pertaining to mental health and lifestyle.
- What bothers you most about what is happening in the country today?
Firstly I would like to begin it by saying that our country has come a long way with its technological and infrastructure development. Corruption and poverty are the two big evils which our existing government is making an effort to do away with the schemes like demonetization & Sabka Saath sabka vikas. But the safety of women and children is what is alarming for me. Today it’s unsafe for women and children everywhere. There is need to develop stringent laws to punish the offenders as where values don’t work fear would. Women reservation would not do us that much favour as providing safe environment and right to education would.
- The Quote or saying that encourages you?
“ Faith can move mountains” is the quote which encourages me day in and out to follow my dreams and aspirations. It motivates me to believe in the power that lay inside each one of us and if we believe in it we can overcome all the difficulties and achieve our desired goals.
- What is true “Sportsmanship” for you?
Being a sportsperson ( state level basketball player) since childhood made me tough not only body wise but mentally too. Loosing and winning is the order of the day. One should be prepared for both. Take success with modesty and failures with learnings & opportunity to be one’s better self.
- If you were selected as a Charity Ambassador what Value addition would you like to make for our Society and how?
Charity is very close to my heart as it is a part of my being to be kind and of any help to people around. I was already devoting time to teaching and fulfilling books/fees/ conveyance to school requirements of needy children near my home in a park. I would like to lay efforts towards child education, welfare and care and would devote my time & attention and resources to the accomplishment of goals towards their welfare as a charity ambassador. Asking for help from other privileged people to provide financial or other support to the underprivileged can also be endeavored.
