Who Am I?

My name is Michelle Mehta, a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach and an Associate Certified Coach through the International Coach Federation. 


I was born in an Indian Family. I was the first person in my family to be born and raised in the United States. I grew up with a tremendous amount of love and support all throughout my life. 


As I entered elementary school, I used to tell my parents, I do not have friends, and I am not close to anyone at my school. 


I entered middle school and I started valuing friendships and made a great group of friends, and was bullied a few times and felt insecure about the way my body looked. 


As I went to high school, I was bullied again and gave up on school by failing the majority of my classes. I changed schools again in Junior Year, and that is when I stepped into my own self-worth and realized what authentic friendships looked like and felt like. 


My college career began with focusing on my strengths of being a leader, team player, and embraced the fact that I was not like my peers. I realized I was made to do things that were unique and different compared to what my peers and classmates were creating. 


My career started off in the Financial Services Industry and realized that the management was not being supportive of their teams. I then worked in the Staffing Industry and experienced 2 lay-offs within 6 months. I gave up on Corporate America after being burnt out. My parents offered me a position in the family business, I enjoyed it even thought it was not fulfilling.


In the past, I always allowed my insecurities to get the best of me and destroyed my self-worth. I felt like I did not matter, I felt like I was not appreciated and loved by my team members, and I felt worthless. 


I realized that what I struggled with was extremely painful and made me a stronger person. I am motivated to inspire and encourage the youth to not let their insecurities from their childhood affect their adulthood. The insecurities that began at a younger age make a lasting impact as the child gets older. By the time they are an adult, if these insecurities are not handled in a timely manner, will impact them in ways that we cannot even comprehend, such as getting involved with Drugs and Alcohol, having bad romantic relationships, having mental issues like Depression and Anxiety, and even attempting to commit suicide.

 

I am passionate about helping teenagers feel authentic, empowered, worthy, loved and creating a sense of belonging that the world needs their talents. If you feel you are called to having your teenager work with me, let’s set up a time to talk and connect. 


I look forward to Empowering Your Teenager to Shine With Confidence!
