As we enter the season of new beginnings, we are pumped to announce that we have, at last count, an 80-woman strong JFH Ambassador Tribe!
All our Ambassadors have chosen to step up to the plate and bat for the mission of women returning to work across India after the breaks that they took to look after others.
Now it's our turn. Now it's YOUR turn.
We asked these phenomenal women, who have extended themselves yet again to reach out to the women around them and educate them about our existence (so that if they want to return to work after a career break, they know that we're here to help them do that), what they thought of themselves in 10 different avataars, as women.
This is what they told us...
1) Mohita Ajmera: Daughter,sister,friend,wife
2) Shweta Jain: Mom + Daughter + Wife + Daughter-in-Law + Sister + Friend + Bhabhi, sister-in-law, niece, fighter, ambitious woman
Being mom is heavenly wonderful. It completes me taking lots of sacrifices & after putting tiring efforts. Being daughter doesn't demand anything but just being good to everyone & that's the beauty. Being wife takes you to the other world which makes you happy, sad, cry, responsible, learner & mom of an adult. Being daughter-in-law takes you to other tough world where you just need to prove yourself right every time. Being sister is good nothing formal. Being friend is where you can share anything or everything. Being Bhabhi demands keeping related ones happy . Being sister-in-law asks for friendliness & understanding. Being niece means enjoy, fun , demands fulfilment. Fighter demands being strong from inside & focusing on your goal & continuously putting efforts in that direction. Being an ambitious woman makes you independent, makes you run after your desire . Demands lots of efforts.

6) Geetha Pradeep: First and foremost I am my son's Mother I am a doting Wife I am my mom's only Daughter I am a loving Daughter in law to my 'Mummy' I am a loving Sister to all my cousins I am the best Friend for handful of people I am a responsible Employee where I work I am the easy-go yet matter-of-fact Boss for those working under me I am a Confidante for some who need me I am a resourceful Mentor always ready to help for a couple of people
As a mother, i will not compromise anything - good or bad for my son. I did not compromise my career, in fact I am happy I quit my job and sat home with my son when he really wanted me. I am my husband's biggest strength and weakness. In fact, we mutually are for each other! I am my mom's only daughter. She never felt she needed a son because I covered it up for her. We have had tough time with each other but have left all that behind. She's always there for me and I want to be like that or more for my son. Me and my 'mummy' share a friendly relation. I have tried to break the shell she's living in but she's way too resistant. So I just let her be whenever we are together. That keeps her happy. All my cousins, especially the girls have the best sister in me. I have been with them all during their wedding time, helping them out with shopping and dressing. We have the best time together. I have some very close friends who may not call up each other every other day. But we are always there for each other and can start from where we left last time, even after a month's gap! I am a responsible employee or resource for all the clients I work. I take up the ownership of my work and make sure that the deadlines are met with quality work. I have been a boss earlier and have always been quite friendly with all of them. I have shared my knowledge with them and led them forward and that's one reason they keep coming back to me even after years of leaving my company. I have been strict when I need to be. Many people I have met consider me as a confidante. I never discuss their issues with anyone else! I just lend my ears and some advice or support as I can. I am happy to have helped out a few people so far in my life. To them I am a mentor. To me I am just humbled that I have been of some help to them.
7) Pooja Seth: Mother, daughter, sister, wife, friend, entrepreneur, daughter in law, sister in law
Being a mother is both rewarding and trying. A look at my child's face is what makes me feel relaxed while the tantrums and pranks are really a test of patience. I haven't been the best daughter but I have been my mom's best emotional support always. As a wife I have had to change and adapt quite a bit to adjust to a more homely kind of role than I had been used to. I have learnt to be the quiet support system for my partner. I have always been there for my friends and love to hang out with them. As a sister I have bwen more like a second mom, caring and dominating. I have found that jn the earlier days u have also been a role model. It's been more of a compromise being a daughter in law as my background is an open culture while my mil is orthodox in her thinking. We have found our balance now. As a sister in law I have received a lot of support and appreciation. As an entrepreneur things have been a roller coaster ride. The mind has a lot of ideas but one has to quantify and qualify each and take measured steps and calculated risks. Si far the journey is thrilling.
