Despite the challenges®

“Some of us face tremendous obstacles in life yet still find the strength to rise above them all. Host Ritu Chopra in her show ‘Despite the Challenges®’ aka DTC, highlights the achievements of people who have overcome impeding circumstances to be successful and realize their dreams. Their life stories of triumph and trial are truly inspirational.”

I am Ritu Chopra, a Management Consultant, Entrepreneur, Author, Inspirational Speaker and the Executive Producer/ Host of ‘Despite the Challenges®’.

I would like to share a bit about myself. Much like many of the guests on my show, I too have personally overcome tremendous obstacles, emotional setbacks, and adverse circumstances. These challenges came in many forms and from many directions. At times I was devastated, heartbroken, hurt, confused, sometimes all at once. But I found the inner strength and courage to overcome despite my challenges®. I truly believe the source of strength was because of the values I was raised with. In my youth, the most important lesson I learned was – ‘Respect for all human beings’. Despite our differences, all of us are here to live our purpose, whatever that may be. The challenges we face help us find that purpose.

Having to deal with plentiful adverse circumstances, I had always tried to motivate my-self and bring the best out of people around me and made them feel valuable contributor. I always wanted to do it in a bigger way, Hence this show ‘Despite the Challenges®…’

Ritu is a wonderful person with an ability to bring out the best in other persons. We worked with her on the TV Show "Despite The Challenges" twice. She made us really comfortable before and during the shows. She was very sensitive about our personal situation and her empathy also showed in all her flexibility to work with our tight schedules. Ritu is not only a very good TV show host, but a person with a pure heart who is on a commendable mission to bring forward people who have inspired and contributed to the society irrespective of their race, creed, occupation or circumstances.

"I was honored to be a guest on the show Despite the Challenges, it was a great experience! Having any type of is difficult, and learning how to overcome the unique challenges is hard but doable. I hope that by sharing the story of my physical disability and all the challenges that came with it, I inspired othersto not only challenge themselves but also inspire others to do the same. Ritu and her producers are incredibly gracious hosts, they made me (and my relatives) feel welcomed and they were truly accommodating. I was nervous speaking on camera but the relaxed and friendly atmosphere made me feel like I was talking to a good friend who wanted to get to know me on a deeper level. All in all, Despite the Challenges, is a great show that features various individuals who overcame their circumstances in some way.

Thank you for having me on your show. I just want to let you know that your approach to conducting the interview put me completely at ease. Although it was my first time on a TV show, the conversational mode caused me to temporarily forget I was in a studio. Thank you for helping me tell my story in a very engaging, yet conversational manner. Please, keep up the good work of encouraging people to tell their stories in the hope of empowering others.
