    Farah Jesani | Becoming Your Own Boss and Infusing Identity & Culture into Your Craft

    Farah Jesani | Becoming Your Own Boss and Infusing Identity & Culture into Your Craft

    In Priya’s second interview, she decided to bring on one of her closest and dearest friends, Farah Jesani. She is the co-founder and CEO of her very own South Asian beverage company called One Stripe Chai. She started it back in 2015 when she noticed early on that a lot of places didn’t really have a variety of chai options and if they did, they were either too sweet or too bland, so she decided to reclaim our Indian culture and spices that we grew up with, and create her very own chai products. Now, One Stripe Chai is in over 150 stores across the country!
    Farah’s entrepreneurial journey and experiences have already enthused so many of their family and friends to pursue their own passions and will definitely motivate and encourage you to take the leap and bet on yourself. Not only does she talk about her business, but her inspiring love story dealing with the challenges of Hindu Muslim relationships and what it took for her and her husband to be together.

    Dr. Niraj Mehta | Bringing Joy and Passion into the Healthcare Space Through Movement and Music

    In Priya’s first interview, she felt it was most appropriate to bring on her older cousin, Dr. Niraj Mehta, who’s been a guiding light and motivational force throughout this entire process. He’s not only a radiation oncologist, but an artist, writer, dancer, actor and founder of Making Moves Universal, which is an international healing program that uses the urban spirit of music and mindful movement to improve the quality of life for those suffering from chronic illness, aiming to bring joy, passion, and art into the healthcare space.
    Making Moves Universal has been featured on NBC, NBC6, TV Asia, CNNEspanol, and Miami Herald and being how culturally connected this dancing doctor is, he’s taken this globally to Brazil, India, Colombia, Barbados, Guatemala and many other locations!
    In this episode, they talk about how Making Moves taps in to the physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual layers of individuals and how it all stemmed from Niraj’s passions he constantly aims to infuse in his profession. Niraj has been an inspiration to not only his patients, but his family and friends, and Priya talks about how he’s impacted her life and helped her discover her own passions along the way.

    Priya Mehta | Your passion is waiting for your courage to catch up

    Priya Mehta | Your passion is waiting for your courage to catch up

    You’ve probably heard the word passion thrown at you so many times, "find your passion", "follow your passion", and you may be wondering, well where do I even start? In this episode, Priya talks about how in just one year, she discovered her passion for improv and stand up comedy, took classes, got to perform in different shows, and learned and discovered so much about herself and her capabilities. Was she good at everything she tried? Of course not, but it’s important to learn how to pivot and accept failure. Failure is part of the process but not the end of the process. It teaches us a lot more than success ever will and it's important to learn how to deal with it.
