In the tapestry of life, Amrita weaves a story of resilience, dedication, and empowerment. As a public speaker, poet, and educator, she champions the transformative power of kindness, respect, and effective information.

Amrita Bokdia is a Life Skills Coach, Writer, and Management Faculty Member at FMS, Udaipur. She has ten years of corporate experience in the marketing and HRM fields. She also writes poems in Hindi addressing social issues such as domestic violence, rape, and female foeticide.

Amrita was born in Solan, Himachal Pradesh, but brought up in Bhilwara, where she completed her schooling. Later, she pursued her BSc in Biotechnology from Maharani College, Jaipur. She went to Pune to pursue her MBA at Balaji University. After working in Mumbai for two and a half years, she shifted to the USA and worked there for eight years. She also completed a certificate in HRM and a Diploma in Guidance and Counseling.

She has also cleared the UGC examination and is currently pursuing a PhD.

After spending 10 years in the USA, Amrita returned to India in 2021 with the motive of guiding the youth of India in terms of professional skills and soft skills. She moved into academia and associated herself with FMS.

Recalling her childhood, Amrita says she is the youngest among three sisters; they used to go on the terrace of their house and sit there for hours and share things.

Amrita says that it was difficult for her to move from the corporate world to academia. She believes that education plays a major role in one's life, so she dedicated herself to educating the youth.

Talking about her challenges, Amrita says she came from a Hindi-medium school. English was a big challenge for her when she was pursuing her MBA. However, she decided that she would not let language become a barrier in her career. She worked hard and later realized that speaking English is an important skill and everyone should learn it.

She also shares that initially she was on an H-4 visa in the US, because of which she was not allowed to work, whereas she wanted to learn something new every day. It was challenging for her to sit idle. Later, she started working with NGOs as a volunteer, which also helped her get better opportunities in the corporate world.

Sharing her achievements, Amrita says today she has become a public speaker, which is her biggest achievement.

Amrita believes that language is important to becoming a good public speaker, as she has seen students who are intelligent and creative but are afraid of presenting themselves before people because they are not good at English. Currently, she is encouraging them and working on their public speaking skills to empower the youth of the country.

Discussing her writing, Amrita describes herself as an expressive person. She attributes her inclination toward poetry to a family legacy, with her maternal grandfather, who serves as her inspiration, along with her mother and sister, all being writers. Additionally, societal stereotypes serve as a motivating factor for her writing.

When asked about her role models, Amrita says she looks up to her mother, who raised her and her sister very well. Furthermore, her mother-in-law also inspires her, as she is pursuing her second master's and Ph.D. even after hitting sixty years of age.

The quote that inspires Amrita is "Identify with oneself, move forward, live for oneself, and maintain self-awareness."

Advising people who want to follow a career in management, Amrita says that even if you have a good education and degree, you still need to have soft skills like effective communication and interpersonal skills to succeed. That's because you're not going to be working alone in the real world, and working with a team requires certain skills. Furthermore, she advises people to be kind and respectful, as it matters a lot in business.

Amrita believes that education and experience are both important, but she thinks that education is more important in the early stages of a career, while experience becomes more important later on, especially in the corporate world.

Amrita advises the people of India that they should utilize information in the most effective way and consider all perspectives before making any decision.
