Brand Ambassador

My name is Renuka Malhi and I am a Fashion designer as well as a Winner the winner of Mrs. South Asian Queen USA 2013. I am an Art Lover and appreciate every such thing that takes me close to nature and its diversity. I am basically from Northern India and currently pursuing my career in Fashion in New York. I am a creative person from my childhood and have always dedicated my time in Arts, Crafts, creating new things out of the scrap and I was also an Athlete. I was a very shy kid who had a lot of aspiration in her heart but was too coy to express them. I am ambitious from the age of 11 when my fellow mates wouldn't even know what ambition is. I opened my wings at the age of 15 and started participating on stage in various cultural programs. My passion for the field of Art and Creativity shrined well when I paired it with confidence and presentation skills. A kid who was so shy decided to show herself to the world.

 

My college life was more academically more successful due to my participation on the stage where i received immense appreciation from the faculties. My professors use to count on me and would vouch on me. I won pageants during my college days but I was still looking for a better platform. I earned my Master's Degree in Literature and moved to USA in 2000 where I ended up working in IT sector out of no choice to help my family who moved here many years before me. My family responsibilities took over my dream career and I almost gave up on it. After many years, I started to realize that it’s very important to live a life that we enjoy and love rather than just living it without passion.

 

In 2008 I quit my IT career and decided to Reinvent myself. I went back to Fashion Schools in NY and graduated which opened doors for me to intern with some great brands like Guess, Hawke and Co. etc. life was still not easy for me and I had to go through many challenges to make it to my goals. I am a mother of 2 children and have family to look after. but at the same time, I believe that it's very important to make your life worth living so when you look back at later stages towards it, you should feel proud of your efforts and that becomes a message to the coming generations as well.

 

Today Re' Malhi is an International brand and have presented collections in many prestigious shows like London Fashion Week scout etc. where my collection earned a great recognition because every piece of mine represents a very rich glimpse of South Asian Culture in modern styles. The Brand got published in many known magazines and newspapers as well as TV channels like VOGUE, Harper's Bazaar, The Times of INDIA National, The Tribune, The National Leader, Fab UK etc. I am very firm person when it comes to decisions which are clearly based on determination, hard work and Focus and these qualities lead me to reach my goals and I thank God and my family for that who stood by me during my tough times.

 

I am highly influenced by my Late Grandfather who devoted his life for the upliftment of mankind and helped enormous number of people through his resources and contributions. He was my God Father and i feel whatever I am today, it's because of his ethics. I was always interested in giving my contributions to the society in a way that it can help the needy. it always touches me that on one side we live a life full of luxuries and can afford anything that looks appealing to our eyes but on the other hand there are people who can barely afford a meal in a day. I was highly touched when in my teenage, I found my mother sponsoring education to a known family who stopped sending their daughter to school because they couldn't afford it. My mother could not see this and helped her out till she passed her higher grade. The girl finally graduated and I am sure will be living a better life due to education. I saw many other instances that encouraged me to always help people and it somehow give peace to my mind and happiness to my heart as well. I feel that I did something worth which is far beyond any luxuries in life.

 

One of my aims was always to help kids with education as I myself being that educated know and understand the value that how being educated can change our lives. when I first learned about Uplift a Child through FACEBOOK, i decided to explore more as the Title seemed very interesting to me. I was fortunate enough to have interacted with the Founder of Uplift a Child and got to know more about the bigger picture and great efforts that are being done towards raising money to help educating needy kids around the world. Knowing that the organization has sponsored 4000 children so far and have board members from all over the world caught my interest towards my hidden desire to help the children. being a mother myself who wants to give the best to her kids, I can understand every child deserves the best in some way or the other. I am so looking forward to giving my contributions to Up lift a child though my talent and profession. To begin with I decided to put one of my Show Stopper outfit which got featured in almost every newspaper in INDIA and also in UK, it's the regal piece with TAJ MAHAL embraided on it, on auction and aims at donating 50% earning from that sale to uplift a child to help sponsor education to more children. 

 

In future, Re' Malhi can help with Fashion Shows or other Art & Cultural programs to raise money towards this great cause in many different locations. We will also work in spreading the message to the masses through social media, taking booths at known cultural programs and word of mouth as well so more and more people become aware of it and can give their contributions in any ways that they can along with targeting more opportunities to reach out to other organizations that can prove beneficial to uplift a child's scope.  I would also be interested in personally visiting and meeting these children and share happy moments with them for as long as i can. I so want to laugh with them and see those smiles that are more precious than any other precious materialistic things. As time permits, I would also like to organize inspirational sessions, teaching sessions and Art workshops during my visit to these schools, I would love to volunteer through representing myself as a part of uplift a child whenever i visit any Cultural programs so i can talk to more and more people to bring awareneMy name is Renuka Malhi and I am a Fashion designer as well as a Winner the winner of Mrs. South Asian Queen USA 2013.
