CITTA BEAUTY (Lexicon Group Venture)

“While growing up I wasn’t sure of what I wanted to study but I was sure I wanted to start my own business. I was born in a business house and I’ve heard discussions about the business since I was young enough to talk. There’s a unique thrill and responsibility of being the owner of your venture.When in the US I saw multiple baby care brands that made their products with complete transparency and good ingredients, and I realized that India needed the same. Realizing the potential, I took it upon myself to begin my venture soon after I finished college.I have only started less than a year ago, but every day I see progress. It is as if each day it becomes a little clearer, less hazy but then new challenges and avenues crop up, and then everything restarts.As a young teen, I was diagnosed with arthritis. At that point, I didn’t understand what the disease meant but I was in a lot of pain, and hardly able to walk. I had to take injections and steroid medicines. You can’t cure arthritis but I improved mine by running. I began with just 5 minutes a day in pain, and eventually, I was running for an hour straight. Today, it’s been 3 years since I’ve stopped taking any medicine. Just my efforts and I get better each day.And last but not the least, remember, ‘Belief in Yourself’. It goes a long way.”
