Pawani Sharma

Chef, Club Mahindra

In the heart of a quiet village in Siwan, Bihar, Pawani's journey began in humble surroundings. With her father running a small cycle shop and her mother a homemaker, Pawani, the youngest of four siblings, dreamt beyond the confines of her upbringing.
Despite facing initial resistance from her family, Pawani remained steadfast in her determination to pursue education and carve her own path. Rejecting the conventional expectation of marriage, she boldly asserted that education alone wasn't enough without empowerment.
Her journey led her from the serene streets of her village to the bustling city of Kolkata, where she graduated from IHM. Joining as a Management Trainee at Club Mahindra, Pawani encountered challenges in the male-dominated industry, but she embraced them as opportunities for growth.
Through perseverance and self-belief, Pawani swiftly climbed the ranks, shattering gender norms and earning respect. Her journey was more than personal success; it was about dismantling barriers for others like her.
A pivotal moment arrived with Club Mahindra's MD Program, opening Pawani's eyes to diverse cultures and professional insights. Reflecting on her journey, she credits Club Mahindra for transforming her life and not just providing employment.
Her message is clear: believe in yourself, overcome obstacles, and never underestimate the power of your dreams.
Pawani's story serves as a beacon of hope, reminding us that no dream is too big and no obstacle too daunting. With the right mindset and support, dreams can indeed become reality.
