I am super excited to be bringing this week’s #HustlinKween’s story.
Her motto in life is to aim to do something that stems from service.
She is also a passionate classical dancer and somehow seems very good at doing two different things from two different worlds very perfectly.
She is brave, she is confident and an inspiring kween who has now helped over 1000’s of people with their health issues in a natural and holistic way.
She is a chiropractor and is a trained classical dancer from the age of 5.
Let’s welcome Dr Anjali Rattan into our Queendom.
Anjali was born in Auckland but her parents migrated from India around 35years ago to create a better life and provide endless opportunities for her and her brother.
“Being infused in a kiwi culture with an Indian ethnic background is not always easy. The constant juggle between the 2 cultures was always a hard one for me.
So at the age of 5 my parents started me off with Kathak classes and made me go to Gujrati classes so I didn't forget my roots. At the time it wasn't something I wanted to do, but now reflecting back I am so grateful that they pushed me to go, otherwise I wouldn't be where I am today”. Anjali continued her dance journey through her years and after doing Kathak for so long she trained in Bharatanatyam for 5 years before joining Indiance in 2011.
One of the most challenging decisions Anjali had to make in her life was regarding which career path she wants to pursue. “I knew I wanted to be in a profession where service was a key element. I also knew I wanted to be in the health profession but a more holistic and natural approach to healing rather than medicinal focused profession. With a lot of curiosity, talking to friends and research is where I came across Chiropractic.
Once I started the journey to become a Chiropractor I knew it was the right choice. My parents on the other hand weren't so keen on the idea- being from an
Indian background they didn't really know what it was and how being a Chiropractor was going to be a good career choice”.
However Anjali carried on with her degree and is now a Qualified Chiropractor for the last 4 years. Being able to graduate from the College of Chiropractic was
Anjali’s proudest moment. “It was the biggest and hardest struggle of my life. It was mentally straining as we would do 7-10 papers per semester. It was all worth it in the end and it’s the most rewarding career and everyday I love waking up to serve our community”.
“I was fortunate enough to have so much love and support throughout this journey and still do. One of my biggest support is my brother Anish. He has been by my side
on my lowest and highest points and continues to give me unconditional love and strength. My parents of course another one. The amount of hustle they have done
to get to where they are today is inspirational. Seeing the amount of hard work, dedication and determination my parents had, to provide us with the luxuries of life that
they never had, is a value I always strive to achieve. Another person I want to mention that had a massive impact on my journey is Akshita Nama.
She is the Co-Founder of Indiance and has been a constant in my life growing up. She provides a platform for so many kids to build their confidence,
personality, strength and love from dance. I was fortunate enough to be one of those kids and still am part of the community”.
“I feel like the more you can give and pour into the world, the better we can uplift each other and create opportunities and environments for others to grow with us.
Everyone is on their own journey; everyone will always have their challenges to overcome and everyone is trying to grow and be their best in this ever-changing world.
Let's continue to support each other's friends, businesses and progressions just like we support celebrities we don't know”.
