Sarika Bhakta’s chapter is titled “Log Kya Kahenge?” (What Will People Think?) and an inspirational foreword written by Sunayana Dumala. Other contributing authors include Amy C. Wagner, Lynnis Woods-Mullins, Nicole Jansen, Cherie Faus Smith, and more! It’s time to “Power Up, Super Women”!
Sarika has magic in her words! She has the extraordinary talent to weave emotions, facts, philosophy all so beautifully to create a compelling picture for the reader. Reading her chapter, I could visualize her grandma standing up for Indian independence, or I felt I was there when Sarika saw the news on TV about her desired position handed off to someone else without prior communication. Her storytelling prowess is enigmatic, and so is her ability to inspire action. Sarika is charismatic, natural and energetic leader who empowers via words, actions and her personality. An author that will tug your heartstrings, and gently guide you to the path to success and harmony! Highly recommend to grab a copy of “Power Up, Super Women”!Reetika Bhandari Sud
I have known Sarika Bhakta for over 15 years, since she began working with me at the American Red Cross. She still manages to amaze and teach me as much now, as she did then. Her chapter about what other people think speaks strongly to her own experience as an Asian American woman but is relatable to ALL women. We are notorious for putting everyone else’s needs before our own. She writes with heart, strength and hope for the journey she is on! I am so proud of her for being true to herself and stepping out of her box. I believe you will find her as inspiring as I do!Angela Jordan
It was indeed a beautiful experience to read this anthology book “Power Up, Super Women”. We all run away from challenges, especially if it’s something out of our comfort zone. What I loved the most about this book was that every woman took a chance, they all made a decision to step out of their comfort zone to make a big difference in their life. Sarika Bhakta’s chapter and her stories made a big impact on me because I am coming from the same culture. There is no stereotype of how a woman should dress, talk, or behave. We just need to step out of our comfort zone to see our full potential. Power Up, Super Women! We all have it in us, we just need to take a step forward.Nimisha Gupta
Real inspirational stories you can relate to instantly! These stories assure us that we all have a hero within and we all have the power to change our circumstances. I resonated with Sarika’s chapter as a South Asian woman, but any woman around the world can relate to her inspirational message as it spans across all cultures. Simply empowering!A. Singh
