September – 2014
Ms. Preethi Srinivasan
With the start of a new NHRD Year, we are launching our INSPIRING WOMEN Series. The first of the speakers is someone truly worthy of being called an Achiever, despite all odds. Ms. Preethi Srinivasan is an inspirational speaker and writer, residing at Bangalore. During her childhood, she was a representative of the Tamil Nadu State Women’s cricket team and a National Level swimmer. All before an accident paralyzed her below the neck. Without allowing the tragedy to pull her down, she has been a phoenix to the core, rising from her own self to be what she is today – a true beacon of hope to people with spinal cord injuries.
Her Soulfree is a public charitable trust that has been established to help the severely-disabled live a life of dignity and purpose. The organisation focuses on the needs of women with disabilities, especially spinal cord injury as there is no support of any kind (medical, rehabilitation, education, employment, societal, government assistance, long-term care facilities) for those who must deal with this presently incurable condition on a day-to-day basis.
Preethi Srinivasan’s Inspiration provides us with the reality check we all desperately need – she brings us back to the very core of our lives. Through her own example she urges us to recognise and fulfil our true potential!
Join us on September 26, at Hotel Savera to hear her deliver her address to the NHRD fold on Health, Happiness and Harmony.
