Continuing with this year’s Woman’s Day slogan #SheInspiresUs, we bring you another woman achiever. Today’s female entrepreneur is Roshni Patel.
Roshni Patel is the ambitious founder of UrbanAsian.com. Her story is inspiring because she has overcome the odds to grow UrbanAsian into a leading news/multimedia website.
Roshni, diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of 13, largely had the odds stacked against her. She was challenged to perform by epilepsy and critics, claiming that she would not be successful due to her condition.
Initially, Roshni worked for a radio station owned by her father. But, for the past 9 years, she has helmed UrbanAsian.com. An innovative and energetic leader, Roshni has grown the website and connected it with new audiences, making it a leading online destination for entertainment and lifestyle news. UrbanAsian, now one of the largest news platforms in the United States, continues to grow in the entertainment and lifestyle industries for its diverse coverage of celebrity gossip, film and female entrepreneurship.
Roshni plans to continue to steer UrbanAsian into the next decade with much to accomplish in 2020 as the website celebrates its tenth anniversary.
A host of IIFA in Tampa and the Bollywood Oscars, Roshni is no stranger to the spotlight and entertainment scene. She has produced films in the US and helped with their distribution worldwide. Roshni studied Masters in Integrated Marketing Communication. She advises people on how to brand their consumer goods or services.
“Don’t allow people to belittle you in life,” Roshni advises. “You have to strive for the best even if you have a health condition. Don’t allow a condition to stop you from your dreams. You can achieve anything you set your mind to.”
