Vidya D'souza- Pinkathon Ambassador Pune 

I am Dr. Rakshaa Prabu, Pinkathon Ambassador of Pune. I have a PhD in Swine-flu and a Post-doctorate in Preterm delivery. Currently, I am working with Pharma R&D on New Drug Development

The Founders and team of Pinkathon always come with a unique way to explore the Womaniya world. During the lockdown of 2020, Milind Soman and team came up with the idea of the Pinkathon@Home! Newsletter. Big thanks to them for providing such a wonderful opportunity for Pinkathon Ambassadors to share their thoughts and knowledge with the community.

I began my journey with Pinkathon two years ago. While speaking to my next-door neighbors Sneha and Sandeep bazaar, I got to know about the Pinkathon Community. After understanding the concept from my mentor and Pinkathon Ambassador Dr. Mithali, Sandeep, and Sharmila Munj.

I started my training locations at Marunji and Thatwade in Pune. I was new to running, especially running barefoot. Pinkathon Ambassador Sandeep Bazaar and his team’s structured program lead me to crack: Mumbai to Pune 100 miles, Lonavala 100km in 24 hrs, and barefoot 24hr podium. This boosted my confidence. I was confident that I could continue running at any stage in life and despite any health conditions. Thank you Pinkathon family for adding a new chapter of physical and mental wellness in my life.

THE BIG IDEA!

My work table is missing: Gap on Resume.

This is not only the story of you and me; it’s about a social belief that a woman’s first priority is to take care of her family. Due to this pressure, a negative impact is created on our health, finances, career, and job opportunities.

It is always difficult for women who re-enter their workspaces to start afresh. But it is never late to start working again. There are many reasons why women quit their jobs.
