TEDx Talk

Dr. Annapoorna Ravichander: Embracing Opportunities and Shaping Her Future

Dr. Annapoorna Ravichander, Head-Training, Resource Mobilisation, Policy Engagement & Communication at PAC and ED, PAF, shared her inspiring journey at a TEDx. She spoke on the chances she made in her life and how she capitalised on them to shape the future she desired.

However, Dr. Ravichander’s journey wasn’t without challenges. She acknowledged the setbacks and consequences she encountered along the way. Yet, she emphasised how these setbacks were not roadblocks, but rather opportunities for growth and evolution. They helped her refine her focus, develop resilience and ultimately, build the successful career she envisioned.

Dr. Ravichander’s story is a testament to the power of embracing opportunities, learning from setbacks and constantly striving for improvement. It serves as an inspiration to all who are on their respective journeys, reminding them that even the most challenging moments can be catalysts for positive change and growth.
