In Sheela’s shoes: Overcoming Fear to Pursue Your Passion

Name: Sheela Pai
What does it mean to have a voice?  It means accepting and finding the beauty in all parts of yourself and your history.
How did you find your voice?When I fell in love with running after over a year of struggling emotionally. I not only found a healthy outlet  for all those feelings but I also met so many people in the incredible NYC running community who openly and eloquently shared their life challenges, making me feel comfortable to do the same. 

During these unprecedented times, we want to address how challenging and impactful this will be in shaping our present lives and future stories. Our blog was built on sharing incredible voices within our community locally and globally that show us – we are not alone. This time shows us how truly connected we are.

By staying at home and doing our best not to spread this virus, we understand how important it is to walk in other people’s shoes. We want to encourage everyone to continue to show kindness to each other. Our ability to be empathetic and compassionate is in great need as we are collectively contributing to safeguard each other. Even though we must be physically separate, we hope that we can continue to connect through our voices and shared experience.

Stay strong, stay healthy, continue to live your incredible lives and lift your voices!
