- How you describe your own Personality and Persona.
My name is Meghna Trivedi, 34 years old from Ahmadabad, Gujarat. I am a Computer Engineering graduate as well as Masters in Computer Science from New York before settling in Boston for the past tweleve years. I currently work as a corporate professional for an established financial firm in Boston as a consultant. God has been very kind and I am blessed with a 4 year old son who has given life a new meaning and loving every part of this beautiful life. My son, Avyay has given a new direction to my life; he has shown me how powerful a mom/woman can be. He has shown me that its never too late to pursue your desires in life and all you need is dedication and hard work. I consider myself as a highly driven, ambitious and a compassionate person. Apart from my day time job, mom's responsibility and taking care of home, I am author and creator of my style and fashion blog "SnazzyBellanista" where I talk about creating awareness about being self-confident and having independent and healthy life style.
- Your Achievements that makes you feel high.
Being a mother is one of the biggest achievements in my life. It's a selfless portrayal of what a woman stands for. I am a very family oriented women and the ability to pursue dreams and ambitions along with motherly responsibilities and a way to reach out and empower other women gives me the real high. I am blessed with a very supportive parents who are my real backbone.
- Define the true beauty.
True beauty is in the mind. Outward beauty will not last forever - there is no cover up. The beautiful mind that god has given proves that fact. What we do using our beautiful mind to create other beautiful things is what I call true beauty. And I wish to pass that along to women all over.
- Do you consider yourself to be a giver or taker?
I consider myself at both ends of the spectrum. As a woman and a mother you are always a giver. Being a working professional I like to take responsibility at work. There has to be a right balance as tipping over on either one and you can fail. Every relationship be it with spouse or children or others, have to strike the right balance for a persons emotional well being.
- What is your favourite Idea of Holidaying?
Locations where its not just relaxing but to see places of natural beauty and historical importance. There is so much to see in this world and if you can you should go out and experience other cultures and places. I have travelled a bit and I can say that I feel great to see the diversity we humans have carved out. For me holidaying is not just closing quarters of my mind, but to invigorate with different senses - be it food or location or people and bring back fond memories of the same.
- Why you are participating in Mrs India Earth?
I will have a sense of achievement.. For other women whom I think possess qualities; and empower them to think that everything is possible. I am proud of my country, my background and who I am today. I feel that I would be able to show to world and other women to expand their horizons and do something that would bring them pleasure. I would like to set an example for everyday women to make a mark in lives of everyone around them.
- What do understand by Global warming and how can it be reduced to save earth?
We has humans in the name of development have robbed our earth of resources and led to a rapid change in earth's climate leading to warmer climate. Everything we do affects one way or the other to the climate. We are just speeding up the process at a much faster rate than anticipated. There are few things that we should do to save our beloved earth. First is educating and encouraging others to conserve resources. Most of the things we can change is by our own habits. Every individual's efforts count on a large scale. Recycling, reusing and reduction of non essentials as well as using renewable sources of energy will have a big impact and conserve our world for future generations.
- The Quote or saying that encourages you?
Love what you do and Do what you love. Believe in yourself, it's never too late.
- If you were selected as a Charity Ambassador what Value addition would you like to make for our Society and how?
It would be a big responsibility to be selected as an ambassador and I would cherish it immensely. I am very passionate about any responsibility that I take up and charity is no less. I will put my effort towards women driven bussiness as well as charitites that would help education for kids and skill training for women. I would work towards making a clean, polution free environment.
- Why do you think giving back to society is important?
There are so many in this world who are impoverished and need a helping hand. Giving back even to some of them would be a huge thing. Firstly, it makes an impact. It also allows to strengthen communities big and small. Also giving back is not a one-way street; rather you learn and improve yourself and help others in future. It’s a way to share expertise and make connections with people from all walks of life. We have all taken help one way or the other, and the best way to complete the karma circle is to better up and help as long as we can - be it by volunteer work or by empowering to make this world a better place. There is no reward, but just a realization that your help has made a positive change if not significant to someone's life.
