We were so honored to be a part of the BAPS 2014 Women’s Conference last month. The event recognized unparalled leaders amongst us and around us. Over 600 women gathered at the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Iriving, Texas. The annual conference is inspired by His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj in an effort to highlight the empowering role of women in today’s society and also to ensure their spiritual growth as it will help them sail smoothly through life’s vagaries.
Mrs. Jamie Patel graced the event with her presence. She conveyed the message to “Lead from Within” through her personal outtakes and stories from the business world, as a wife, a daughter and a mother. She expanded on a few simple, yet essential points by stating, “great souls have will..will is character in action. Think about what they did to accomplish great things, they listened, believed, planned and lead from within to make a positive impact.” The audience took inspiration from her accounts and understood that the choices they made everyday make them true leaders.
Ruby discussed with the audience her personal trials and trumps in the journey of becoming a respected leader in the fashion world. She shared with the audience the values she heeled steadfast during her journeys and emphasizing upon the strengths that women often innately bring to the table!
Thank you for letting us be a part of such an inspirational event!
