And how she got featured in The Tribune!
Crafting, which she calls her profession now, used to be her hobby, five years back! She loved making greetings for her family and friends. Once, she made an album for a friend of her that turned around everything for this young girl, rooted in the winter capital of Jammu and Kashmir. “Initially, it was easier said than done, as people over here weren't aware of crafting. I had to deal with discouragements, but I never gave up. My family has been a constant source of strength and encouragement. It was them, who motivated me. In the crowd of people, who craft only for fun, I opted for it as my profession, when I was in class 11. I started this venture called Pearls Creations where we provide crafts like Platters, bouquets, homemade chocolates, and much more.
I always knew that I possessed the zeal for crafting, which in turn, got fostered further. Being featured in the National daily - ' The Tribune ' is one of the remarkable events of my life. We don't know what future has in store for us but, I surely want to have an art gallery of my own." says Palak Jain, a crafter, who got emboldened by her family to go for it.
