Tanya is a Terpsichore, lover, believer- in that order. A publicist by profession and a hard-core social media enthusiast. A self-confessed news junkie and a wannabe kick-boxer. She also has an ear for cheesy tunes!
Tell us about yourself, your background and what you do currently
I am twenty seven years old, born and raised in Mumbai. I am a PR and Social Media professional with a clientele base of Entertainment, Lifestyle and Sports Industry. Being in the communication industry for around six years now, I love my job and everything that comes with it.
Since I am a freelancer now and work on my own, things do tend to get hectic because of work schedule, nature of work and certain deadlines but, I am here, to find love between all that chaos…
Tell us about any current projects or initiatives you wish to promote
As a little girl, I have always been the one who over-watered the plants as i didn’t know when to stop giving 🙂 I think if we all in our own little way try and help the needy, this world will become a better place to live.
I am a part of the Lokhandwala Running Club that promotes healthy lifestyle and does charity.
As a team, we are currently associated with Rajani Foundation India for undertaking the educational responsibility of over 50 underprivileged students of Zilla Parishad Schools – Chiradpada, Fulorepada & Pisepada as apart of the “Each One, Teach One” initiative 2017-18.
What has been your biggest challenge in achieving your success?
PR industry, especially the entertainment/show business is quite unorganized! To maintain a disciplined life other than work and then jump back into the unorganized life was a little challenging in the start… But then like I mentioned earlier, when it comes to your career/your profession- it’s all about finding love in the chaos. I am lucky to have found mine!
What has been your greatest achievement personally?
For me even a word of appreciation from my seniors or client on a regular day means a lot and encourages me to do better! I think there will be many rainy days in life, when you will be disappointed and feel things are unfair… but never let that come in between what you’re out there to achieve; you just need to keep the raincoat handy to not let the spark in you die.
If you weren’t doing what you do now, what would you be doing?
Wow! That’s a very interesting question! I have always loved the Stage, live performances, spontaneous reactions, being there…in the moment. Well, I am born with a Terpsichore-an bone; have been dancing since I was 4 years old. I am a trained Bharat Natyam dancer, have been a part of Shiamak Davar’s Special Potential Batch for two years and I am currently learning Belly Dancing. So, if at all, I wasn’t a publicist by profession, I’d probably be learning and performing away to glory at Hollywood’s Hottest Dance Studio-Millennium Dance Complex.
Who has been your biggest inspiration?
Undoubtedly, my Mother! She is my pillar of strength! For me she is a living example of a strong woman who never played victim, never made herself look pitiful and worked hard all the way. Like she always tells me “Stand up and deal with it”.
What does the future hold for you?
I am living ‘the now.’ Sometimes it is more important to figure out where you are than to decide where you are going. If you don’t know where you are, how do you expect to know your destination? We forget that happiness is a journey. I think my ultimate goal is to build a life I don’t need a vacation from!
