It was one of the most blissful days in the life of Priya Priyadarshini Jain for it also marked the grand launch of coffee table book on ‘50 most influential Indian women worldwide’ featuring her as one of the most prominent personalities from India.
“Indian Woman of Influence Awards” had awardees from various countries like Britain, India, USA, Spain, and Scotland. The award recognized the power of Indian women residing in different parts of the world. This award assures that women of Indian origin are the leaders in their respective fields in the countries they presently live.
The awards were presented by the Barons of the UK Parliament in the glittering presence of respected Member of Parliament, their families and the elite section of London. It was indeed a memorable moment for every recipient which they'll cherish for the rest of their life.
While accepting the award at the UK Parliament, Priya owed the award to her late father Mr. DK Jain who was a pioneer in the field of education and business. She has inherited high values, skill and zeal of entrepreneurship from the deeds and thoughts of her father.
Priya firmly believes that one may be born rich, or have an illustrious and much wealthy legacy but to get further success and reputation one has to have the vision and hard work. "You have to set your own goal. You have to pave your path. You have to believe in yourself. Think a thousand times before you make a decision but once started never look back," she says.
Priya has deep faith in nation-building and her interest for the same could be understood through her articles on Skill India & Ayushman Bharat being published in many magazines and newspapers. She is a great admirer and follower of the incumbent Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi.
