An unforeseen excursion – Rakshita Mehra

Dreams do come true! Finding the road to achieve your dreams, missions, goals, and

aspirations is an epic journey on its own. Having said that, my journey is no less than a

roller coaster ride. Well, I call it my Nutri journey!


Greetings everyone, I am Rakshita Mehra, a Dietitian, a Nutritionist and a Food Safety

Supervisor. I am the Founder of Nutrishala – Paathshala Of Nutrition, a healthcare

company. My journey has always been unpredictable because opportunities and

achievements have entered my life in their own beautiful and unexpected ways.

Six years ago, I used to be a studious and shy girl in the class. I aimed to become a doctor since childhood. So, I opted for science stream in class eleventh. Simultaneously, I also enrolled myself in an institute to get additional sources of preparation in academics in order to clear medical entrance exams. I tried my best at both my school and institute but suddenly there was a dramatic shift in my interest. I realised that MBBS isn’t my cup of tea. Eventually, I started taking a back seat from my studies and as a result, I scored unexpectedly in my twelfth standard.

Gradually, everyone started having lower expectations from me. I used to think a lot about

other options for career. I came up with the decision of becoming a dentist and my

parents supported me in that decision. They also got ready to admit me in the college

offering that course but during the final stage of admission, I backed off from that

decision as well.
