Education – the key that opens up opportunities and should be a universal right to any and all children across the world. On this episode today, I’ve invited Komal Shah to share with us her journey to raising conscious children through education– all inspired by one child she met by chance in India during a holy pilgrimage.

Hope you stay and listen in on how Komal found her purpose, so you too can find your way to fulfillment!

About Komal Shah:

After growing up in a closely knit Indian-American community, Komal decided to take Biology at UC Irvine, but then began to question her career– unsure if she really wanted to be a doctor. After she met a young girl on a trip to India, she had an epiphany that sparked a new purpose in her.

Upon her return to the United States, she applied for Teach for America, and that shifted everything in her life for the positive, an experience she will never look back on, teaching her to step into her power as a teacher.

    As a rule, I am not a fan of podcasts: it’s challenging for me to engage and focus with only the auditory sense.

    Quinn’s podcast is the exception. Her inherent passion, curiosity and smarts make her a natural interviewer and a joy to listen to.
    There’s no hemming and hawing with this woman – she just dives right in and teases out her subject’s fascinating story.
    And Kamal’s story is truly incredible, and made me a bit hopeful about education for future generations.
