Sandy Dosanjh [Panelist]
My beginnings were humble and simple. I was born in a small village in the state of Punjab, located in the north of India. I would walk narrow dirt pathways to school, with the occasional glimpse of a peacock flaring its feathers. I came from a very traditional family, and was not permitted to engage in sports. I therefore channeled all my energy into education. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts, and subsequently my Masters in Economics. After working over 8 years in the financial industry, I decided to transition into becoming a full time personal trainer. It has allowed me to fulfill my long time desire of inspiring and empowering other women to achieve their personal best, and achieving their highest pinnacle of personal success. However, there is no greater sense of empowerment than serving as a role model for my two kids.
