GUNJAN JAIN dwells on the narratives of women achievers in her She Walks, She Leads
In a tête-à-tête with GUNJAN JAIN, Citadel finds out about her book, She Walks, She Leads, which dwells on the narratives of women achievers that have touched even the hearts of men.
Gunjan Jain, a graduate in the eld of Economics and Finance from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA, is a book enthusiast. She also holds a Masters Degree i n Wealth Management from Cass Business School, City University, UK. Given that Gunjun is an avid reader and a compulsive writer, her tome, She Walks, She Leads, is the reection of her passion for writing. On being asked about t he book, Gunjun says, “I have always had a keen interest in people; to discern, learn from and connect with universally, and thus my book, She Walks, She Leads!” Having pursued Economics, Finance and Wealth Management abroad, we wonder how Gunjan ventured i nto writing. She clarifies, “I am a great believer of destiny and the existence of a divine plan. And that was the start of my journey as an author. I had this image of the book in my mind and it was so clear that I had to simply follow it along. And once I started on it, I was too excited about it to let it go, irrespective of the challenges that came up…there was no power on the earth that could have stopped me!” Writing a novel is not everybody’s cup of tea; the skill comes with its own set of challenges. We ask Gunjun about the difculties that she had to face during the process of penning down her tome. She responds, “I can’t claim to know…I have just about embarked on one myself! But, based on my experience I can say that writing is hard work and it requires a disciplined, thought-out approach like any other task does.” She continues after some thought, “In addition, the importance of belief in self, in your abilities and in your project is crucial, because that is what will push you through the darkest and most difcult of times. At the end of it though, the satisfaction of seeing your name on the product of all your efforts is worth it all.” She has a self-satised smile. Next, Gunjan talks about her undying love for non-ction books and the author she admires from the bottom of her heart. “It is almost impossible to pick one favourite author, but if I had to choose one it would be Arianna Hufngton, a Greek-American author, a syndicated columnist and the Editor-in-Chief of The Hufngton Post. I enjoy her writing,
