“Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome.” The most appropriate words for our lady inspiration, Dr. Thejo Kumari Amudala, and her incredible journey to the top. She is a lady who began her path alone in 2002 when she founded THEJAS Groups and is now the driving force behind the success and accomplishments of many others. She was able to start from scratch in such a patriarchal society with zero assistance and rise to the pinnacle of success with a profound impact on the growth of others’ lives.
Her hard work, willpower, and perseverance led to her inclusion in the lists of the Top 10 Most Inspiring Personalities 2022, Top 10 Most Influential Personalities Thriving in Their Fields in 2023, and not just within her own country, but also as one of the Top 50 International Iconic Women of 2022 and the Under 50 Global Inspirational Woman of 2023.Dr. Thejo Kumari Amudala was recently presented with the Business Excellence Award 2023 by the Honorable Governor of Andhra Pradesh, Sri Biswa Bhusan Harichandan. She earned the title of “Woman Entrepreneur of the Year” as well as the Global Business Tycoon Award, the International Business Icon Award, and many others.
Her accomplishments and success extended beyond the realm of business to include her interest in competing in beauty pageants and encouraging social activities. Even in her 40s, she attended a beauty pageant and became the winner of Mrs. Universe 2022 with her blissful glow and charming personality. Other titles won by her in the fashion industry are “Mrs. India Glam Icon Winner,” “Mrs. India International Winner 2022,” and “Mrs. Asia Universe 2022.”
Despite her gigantic accomplishments and significant life milestones, she maintains a modest and down-to-earth demeanor. A humanitarian who sees the well-being of society as her top priority. Her greatest success, in her opinion, is the happiness she sees on the faces of those who are unprivileged with anything she can provide them. She participates in charitable endeavors, fights for human rights, women empowerment, and other causes, among many others.
Her social activities earned her precious titles, including Real Super Hero Award by the United Nations, Nelson Mandela Nobel Peace award, Abdul Kalam Diamond Sparkling award, Indira Gandhi International Seva Ratna Award 2022, Rajiv Gandhi Excellence Award, Attal Bihari Vajpayee Samman Award and many more. She became a “Global Peace Ambassador” and the first woman from India to receive the “Global Iron Lady Award”. After viewing her philanthropic activities and fight for human rights, World Human Rights Protection (WHRPC) appointed her as World Human Rights Protection Commission Ambassador and National President for Human Rights at WHRPC in India.
She also received the “Top Prestigious Personality and Iconic Legend Award” from famous cricketer Sunil Gavaskar, the “Global Fame Award in the Category of Most Popular and Tru Legend Award” from inspirational actor and social activist Sonu Sood, and last but not least, the “Trend Setter Award 2023” from Bollywood singer Padmashri Kumar Sanu. Her path to success and accomplishments was fraught with difficulty but ultimately rewarding.
