To address and help alleviate the emotional challenges of college life that students often face, the University of Findlay’s Office of Student Activities and Intercultural Student Services will be offering uplifting readings from an influential source.
“My Little Epiphanies – Love from Aisha,” will be held on Wednesday, April 6 from 7-8 p.m. in the Alumni Memorial Union’s Multipurpose Room. The free, public event will feature writings from the late Aisha Chaudhary, a motivational speaker and author from India. The program’s title mirrors Chaudhary’s book of the same name.
Assisting with organization and presentation is Bharat Malhotra, a UF MBA student.
Chaudhary, who died in 2015 at age 17, was well known and appreciated for her positive attitude toward life and learning. She was born with an immune deficiency disorder and overcame a predicted life expectancy of only one year to become an accomplished artist. Despite a serious lung disease called Pulmonary Fibrosis, her persistent optimism, extraordinary maturity in the face of impossible odds and calm perspective on life’s challenges have been a source of inspiration to many.
The UF event is conceptualized on the ideology that the lives of students are very busy and stressful. Sometimes they tend to get demoralized and need a source of inspiration and a sense of positivity to drive them toward their goals.
“I believe that by sharing Aisha’s journey we can accomplish our goal of spreading happiness, joy, truthfulness and sense of motivation among students as well as staff on campus,” Malhotra explained. “At the same time, I believe if only one individual gets inspired by the event, then the purpose of the event is fulfilled.”
