Twenty Seven Years after graduating from Shatin College, Pashmina was invited to participate in her very first TEDx presentation. She discussed how intuition has been her greatest teacher, and how a series of epiphanies actually came to fruition, when she learnt to listen to her gut.
Pashmina's first epiphany was when her eldest daughter was born premature - 16 years ago - at 26 weeks, and weighing only 945 grams. At this fragile time in her life, Pashmina realised that trying to control her outside circumstances was not helping the little baby grow. When she began to let go, and trust in the power of something bigger than herself, a series of epiphanies hit her like a wave.
Pashmina discussed her meeting with His Holiness The Dalai Lama, and how connecting with him was definitely written in the stars. stay tuned for the TEDx YouTube highlight launching next month.
"Epiphanies come to fruition through intuition, and trusting in the power of the present moment." Pashmina P.
On march 22nd 2019, Pashmina had the honour of meeting the 14th Dalai Lama. The trip to Dharmsala, India was a journey that Pashmina never thought would happen. The ripple effects of writing The Cappuccino Chronicles Trilogy, has led her to some very interesting places. By far, meeting with His Holiness has been the most memorable.
She presented her book to His Holiness, and he looked at them and whispered her name. He then offered his blessings and reminded Pashmina to, "be good." The meeting has left Pashmina with an overwhelming feeling of gratitude and love. The spiritual pilgrimage led her to Hong Kong shortly after India, where she was invited to speak at a Tedx talk at her old high school. The theme was on epiphanies, which was an appropriate topic, especially after her beautiful encounter.
Pashmina is so honoured to say that The Cappuccino Chronicles Trilogy is NOW in the hands of His Holiness The Dalai Lama. She's not sure if it can get better than that. Let's see what other epiphanies lay on the horizon for this author.
In celebration for Women's Day in Thailand, Pashmina collaborated with Natalie Gleobova, author of I Am Winning, A Guide to Personal Empowerment, and Talar Zambakijan from Be a Starlette. 30 women were showcased by a 'wall of pictures' to highlight the theme of uplifting each other up. Money was raised for The Good Shepard Home, for battered women.
Pashmina was asked to speak on a panel where she discussed a time when she was bullied in her life by another woman. The theme of the day was to also provide some inspiration to other women at the event, reminding them that we are all in this together. Pashmina also discussed how an influential woman entrpenuer helped her to become brave in the workforce. Pashmina was grateful to be part of this event. You can also watch her on the Youtube link below from TNN Channel 16.

In November 2018, Pashmina hosted a Children's Publishing Workshop in Thailand. Students, aged 8 to 15 from the community participated in this event. Pashmina's mission was to find a child artist to help her with her upcoming book, "What is a Gupsey." Launching in summer 2019.
Two children from the workshop were shortlisted for the project and Ari Silva was chosen to be the artist. Pashmina believes that children need a voice too. The onset of the collaboration stems for Pashmina's love for teaching. She is excited to host more of these workshops and looks forward to finding more talent in the near future.
Children are our future and deserve to be heard. If anyone has a child who would be interested in getting published, please do not hesitate contact The Online Author's Office for more details. the team can't wait to hear from you.
