Women are not any different from men when it comes to what they learn from their mothers. But often the unique bond that daughters share with their mothers means that women are more likely to take their mothers’ advice and carry it forward in their lives.
Growing up, I was deeply influenced by my mother. The values she instilled in me – by education or by example – empowered me at every step of my personal and professional life, and molded me into the person I am today. And for that, I am grateful.
My mother was a remarkable person. She personified the motto “when the going gets tough, the tough gets going”. She had lost her father at a young age which was challenging. True to her strong personality and enduring spirit, her journey, where she went on to lead a harmonious and successful life, was nothing short of inspiring.
