Typical day?

After work, I write articles, do neuro-linguistic coaching sessions, I am a published author (I was in India's Top 100 Debut Author List and am working on my second novel) and have my own podcast coming soon - I have been invited as a guest on Amor.Self podcast to speak about 'Self-Acceptance'.

Challenges?
To achieve something in life, we have to face challenges. I remember when I was writing my first novel, I felt anxious and low in confidence, with rejection from everywhere and thought that I couldn't write it. By doing meditation and visualisation about my journey and dreaming about my cover page it came out exactly as I wanted it.

Your NTU experience?
I can write a book about my experience at Nottingham Trent University! It is one of the best decisions in my life. I involved myself in the debating society, music society, volunteered with Age UK, and mentoring with the Employability team. Academically speaking, my tutors helped me - they moulded me how to think, and they got best out of me. The skills I had gained by working part-time in the Student Union was incredible. I was a part of Freshers Team and helped other students to settle into the new environment. The Global Lounge was amazing, I met and learnt about different cultures.

How friendly and supportive an environment did you find Nottingham Trent?
I remember, when I was worried about my assignments and other matters, the Student's Union Help Center and other guidance was always available. Professors were there to guide us about the assignments and career advice. Adjectives fall short to describe how friendly and supportive Nottingham Trent University is.

Any exam revision tips?
I have learned that if you are focusing in your class, you never have to fear exams. I would suggest revising class notes, and mind mapping everything will help in the exam. Revise for the exams by writing, it really helps.

Career highlights?
I am so proud that I have come this far in life. I am a published author, coach, Mental Health Advocate, soon-to-be podcaster and Human Resource Professional. Personally, I am the best version of myself and striving for better every day. I have a routine to follow, changed my habits in life and follow a healthy lifestyle. I have become extrovert and able to speak in front of larger audiences - I realised how much I love speaking. I have become confident, as I never was before.

Where have you taken your advice and inspiration from?
I believe that life is a great professor and people who touched my life directly or indirectly have inspired me and helped me to guide myself. I learned my lessons the hard way, but inspired and advised myself in this journey.

Advice for others?
Be honest and truthful. Just see a thin line between being honest and being rude. Love yourself, that should be your first priority and it is important to be authentic. Follow the mantra - Amor Fate (Fate of Love) - accept things around yourself, have a mindset of acceptance. You can only control things which are in your hands.

Any tips for job seeking / interviews / careers?
Be like a computer, upgrade yourself everyday with new skills and curiosity. I believe that curiosity will take you places you have never discovered.

Plans for the future?
I see my next novel coming up in December. Launching my own podcast on Spotify and making a difference in people's life.

Any other information?
Please do listen my podcast on Spotify on Amor.Selflove and here is the link for my Entrepreneur Series on being self-discipline and being creative in the pandemic on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tv/CAVamkYppsV/?igshid=pgk75ggbt1la

quote: [Follow your passion and strive to be the very best that you can, whilst at the same time doing what makes you truly happy.]

Course: BA Hons International Business
Year: 2012
Job title: Marketing and Communications
Employer: Bangkok International Preparatory and Secondary School (Thailand)

Current role?
I work in the marketing department of Bangkok International Preparatory and Secondary School, also known as Bangkok Prep, in Thailand. One of the things I enjoy is the variety of tasks which mean that no two days are the same.

Typical day?
My role is very exciting and allows me to perform a range of different assignments. These include content writing, proofreading of marketing copy for print and online publications, liaising with external suppliers, maintaining the school's social media accounts and also ad hoc tasks that arise.

I am very pleased that the International Marketing and Communication module which I was taught as part of my International Business degree at Nottingham Trent has been extremely useful and relevant to me. This module, led by Fiona Winfield from Nottingham Business School, really excited me; the case studies and theory that was taught has prepared me soundly for working in marketing in the South-East Asian market.

Career developments?
Since leaving Nottingham Trent I have worked and then furthered my education with a Master's degree at another institution in the UK where I graduated with a distinction.

Your NTU experience?
I fondly look back on my time at Nottingham Trent as being the best years of my life. Everyone from the academic staff to support staff were kind and friendly to me, and I was given an excellent environment in which to study and learn in. I spent one year studying in a French Business School as part of my International Business sandwich degree. Nottingham Trent provided excellent guidance and support with this placement year, which gave me an essential year of experience of living internationally.

How friendly and supportive an environment did you find Nottingham Trent?
As a Nottingham Business School undergraduate, I enjoyed a fantastic environment with many staff who I still remember vividly even though my graduation was almost ten years ago! The International Business programme in particular was full of many great academic staff who inspired me greatly such as Yvonne Carlisle, Rachel Welton and Ofelia Palermo and many more.

Any exam revision tips?
I would advise any students reading this to make the most of your friends and course mates! I found it effective to book a group study room in the library and discuss topics together. You are all in the same boat and will be able to revise and practice topics together. Make sure to offer each other emotional support too.

Advice for others?
I think you have to follow your passion and strive to be the very best that you can, whilst at the same time doing what makes you truly happy. Be confident and do not give up easily on your dreams.

Any tips for job seeking / interviews / careers?
Firstly, start early! You can start looking for graduate jobs and applying in the first part of your final year, this will enable you to get a head start over others and keep your options open.

Also I can suggest utilising the Nottingham Trent Employability Team who will be able to help you to draw up a specific strategy tailored to your needs.
