Veena....Transformer and Change Maker

Veena, passionate about supporting others fulfill their dreams

I met this incredible lady at UnikBlends Women4Women event where Helga shared her profound story, Part I & Part II. Our paths crossed again at The Hague Garba Night, where she was promoting sweetly scented soaps and lotions, handmade from natural oils and essentials. I was intrigued, as Veena was first introduced to me as a MBA career woman, working at a consultancy. I had to know more, so I asked, to which Veena passionately responded, sharing with me her amazing journey of her hard-grinding banking world in India to running two of her fulfilling businesses, one of which is about luxurious handmade products called Naturally U.

Veena's remarkable story and the fact that her products are infused with natural ingredients, not to mention their irresistible scents, made me an instant customer! I got the mint and aloe vera bar soap at the Garba night. I bet you would fall in love with them, just like I did once you give them a trial... .......just read on.

Cross Boundaries with New Possibilities

I am from South India, where I completed my MBA and for 2.5 years developed a career in an International Bank. My working days were however very busy, very long (12 - 14 hours daily) and I eventually found I was not happy or satisfied.

In 2007, my husband and I built our first home in Bangalore, India, which gave me my first break from the banking world as I quit my bank job. After a few months, I started lecturing to Business Management Students at Maharani Lakshmi Ammani College for Women. I really loved my time here, even though it was for only one semester. I chose to take care of Angelina, my daughter. I was not so comfortable with sending her to a creche at such at tender age. I however continued teaching part time, giving English lessons. I enjoyed my days as a full time mom.

In March 2012, my husband was relocated to The Netherlands and I saw this as an opportunity to discover a new country and continent. It was a really amazing time of exploration for me and my family.

First time of meeting lovely Veena
