In keeping with our vision to help our students be fit for life, Dr RamG Vallath, a motivational speaker and an Inventure parent, was invited to speak to the Senior school students. Struck by a personal tragedy at a young age, Dr RamG is an epitome of one who has turned adversities into opportunities. Read below his fascinating journey!
RamG Vallath describes himself as the most positive individual he has ever met in his life. At the age of 34, at the height of his successful corporate career, he was stricken down by a rare autoimmune disorder that crippled him and made it difficult for him to use his hands and legs. RamG’s journey from there was simultaneously difficult and inspiring. RamG is a published author and his autobiography “From Ouch to Oops” was published in November 2014 and instantly became a bestseller.
Today, RamG is a motivational speaker who has addressed tens of thousands of both corporate employees and students. The key themes that run across his talks are taking end to end ownership in life, pushing oneself outside the boundaries of comfort, staying positive through difficult times, respecting individuals, and most importantly, about turning disadvantages into springboards for success and achieving success through hardwiring happiness. RamG’s aim in life is to touch a million lives positively. RamG is also the parent of 11th Grade student Advay Ramgopal.
His talk to our Grades 11 and 12 was really inspirational. The key takeaways for us was that we can always start life over, at any point in time and that we should never forget to reach out to our loved ones during times of hardship.
