Verteil kicked off its International Women’s Day celebrations with an inspiring session by Priya Stephen, who spoke about her transformational journey on being a fitness enthusiast and an adventurer.
The day was filled with many surprises where all the women of Verteil were treated to lunch and later entertained with a live musical performance by the gents of Verteil.
Learning the power of dedication with Priya Stephen
Priya works as a Brand Communication Manager at Caplin Point Laboratories and is an entrepreneur, mother and fitness enthusiast.
In spite of having her hands full, she always finds the time to embrace her love for trekking. Some of her notable climbs include Annapurna Base Camp, Triple Pass Trek and Kang Yatse II.
Like all inspiring women, Priya had plenty of amazing stories to share as she walked us through the journey that moulded her into being the person she is today.
Priya started gaining weight during her pregnancy. When her health got affected she knew it was time to start working out and she decided to visit a nearby fitness centre.
Despite the heavy workouts, Priya found out she wasn’t losing much weight and began keeping strict tabs on what she ate. Over a period of time she was able to bring down her weight from 104 to 55.
Priya’s trekking adventures began when a friend told her to find a reason to stay fit. Not being athletic by nature, she still decided to try trekking in Annapurna Base Camp. This turned out to be a great learning experience for her.
She further enlightened us by talking about overcoming multiple challenges like dealing with a stomach bug and helping one of her friends recover from mountain sickness.
Inspiration to stay fit
When asked about what inspires her to stay fit, Priya responded by saying that you need to have discipline. Consistency always helped Priya to make sure she stayed focused on her goal.
An unforgettable lunch
The gents at Verteil made the Women’s day celebrations extra special by taking the ladies out to lunch. While this thoughtful gesture was a great opportunity to bond outside of work, it also showcased Verteil’s commitment to always be appreciative of the hardwork and dedication shown by our female colleagues.
The celebrations came to an end with a wonderful display of the musical talent of Jaison and Amaljith.The beautiful melodies were captivating and it showed the power music holds in bringing people together.
