Hello, I'm Uma
The youngest daughter of four children, born and raised in an Indian Air Force family, I was always the one with starry eyes and big dreams. My father’s work constantly moved us to new places, and I fell in love with every new culture and habitat.
Before I even reached an age where I could judge people, I began to have an understanding of them, their personalities, and their nuances. I could tell how confidence and meek manners shapes people, and the people around them.
I developed a profound understanding of how each of us creates our own future with our beliefs, our behaviour and most importantly with our habits.
My journey in the spotlight began with the prestigious Gladrags’ Mrs India 2005 title. I started a television production house ‘Queen Bee Production' and under this banner, I launched the first-of-its-kind lifestyle show ‘High Life Dubai’ which soon made me a household name in the Middle East. I’m proud to have pioneered the local television content production for South Asian TV channels. Living the high life was my dream; the awards and accolades that followed definitely added a silver lining. My company grew exponentially, producing more than five successful shows across channels. And the awards continued. As my career took a mercurial flight, I fell into an unsuspecting trap. Burn out, stress and overwork which silently crept into my life, affecting my physical, mental and personal wellbeing. Like any good friend would, my friends and well-wishers also advised me to hang in there while I was at the top of my game. But somewhere in the midst of this frenzied glory, I knew something was wrong, and it had to be fixed.
