While going through this patience testing journey, she discovered her North Star- connecting with little ones/ toddlers. Her endless passion for engaging with children in every possible way inspired her to commence her entrepreneurial journey, for which she is constantly supported by her husband and her 9 years old son.
Immensely influenced by the Art of Teaching by ‘Shri. Gijubhai Badheka’, Nehal actively took interest in teaching her niece during along with other neighboring kids. And the pillar of educating children with fun matured intensely when her son started going to a Play school.
