Listen to this interview:
“If you want to explore something new in your life, you have to get out of your comfort zone.”
Mehak Mirza Prabhu’s story is one of the most powerful stories that I have came across in the recent past. Being born on simple Maharastrian family, Mehak was living her life as a very protected child till she reached the age of 19. Her life took crazy turn as series of events happened in her life from losing her entire family to a brutal car accident to going through depression after separation with her husband at the age of 30.
Mehak fought through all this to gift this world with something that she always had within herself, the art of storytelling.
She is an amazing writer and storyteller who captivates her audience with the blend of her unique style of storytelling and dramatic twists on stories. Some of her stories has went viral on social medias.
Some Questions I ask Mehak
- What is so liberating about sharing stories with other people?
- What is that one dream that you are passionate about achieving today?
- Why do you think that we find the best in us in toughest situations of our life?
- How do you practice those stories?
