Mrs. J Gohlyan
- A Brief about yourself and how you describe your own Personality and Persona.
I am a strong willed and level headed women who loves being happy and enjoy every single day of my magical life. I am an adventurous person and I do not miss an opportunity to jump of a plane or dive in the ocean. Travelling is second nature to me and it has taught me that every single person is different in their own way and our differences are what unite us. Everyone of us have great potential to achieve anything if we have the right frame of mind and a zeal to work hard.
- Your Achievements that makes you feel high.
I have been very lucky to have experienced many moments that make me feel proud and at the same time thankful. Academically my highlight was receiving a gold medal for my MBA degree from ex-deputy chairman Mr. Montek Singh Ahluwalia. My love for adventure and sports has earned me a solo paragliding license, adventure club’s president designation and an award for winning open Lawn Tennis tournament(girls) in my college. Work is worship for me. Entrepreneurship is in my blood and I pursued it by starting my first company at the age of 22. Teaching the kids at an NGO named Diksha gives me the best high on a daily basis.
- Define the true beauty.
True beauty is a beauty that comes from within. Beauty that reflects your persona no matter how the world functions. It comes when you choose to be yourself and are at peace within.
- What makes a complete, healthy and happy family for you?
A family where everyone is willing to put efforts and do things for each other without any expectations. Right frame of mind, positivity, being direct and clear about what we think makes a happy family. Trust and belief on your family members is one of the greatest reasons for a happy family. I also believe regular communication, support and encouragement can help in the mental health of the family. Physical health can only be attained through strict exercise and healthy eating habits.
- What is your favorite Idea of Holidaying?
Trekking in the mountains, embracing nature at its finest, is the best holiday for me. Sleeping under the starlit sky and waking up to a beautiful sunrise is a bliss. I find myself at calm and at peace when I look at the strong and ever-present mountains.
- Why you are participating in Mrs India Queen of Substance?
It is a platform for women to be an influencer. I believe in giving back to the society and this is the path that will give a boost to my effort in making the world a better place.
- What bothers you most about what is happening in the country today?
Quality education for kids who cannot afford it is a big threat to our nation. There are plenty of NGO’s that are doing a great job in providing education to the students. But I believe that we still have a long way to go in this regard.
- The Quote or saying that encourages you?
Don’t trade in your authenticity for approval.
- What is true “Sportsmanship” for you?
Respect and ethics are integral part of sportsmanship for me. I believe we are all in it together and the motive being bigger than just ‘winning’.
- If you were selected as a Charity Ambassador what Value addition would you like to make for our Society and how?
I would like to be a part of every opportunity I get to bring a difference in the society. I would also like to start a campaign to ‘teach the teachers’ wherein the teachers who are doing a great job in helping and teaching kids but lack the proper technique of teaching can be taught by professional teachers in India.
