Sushmita Sen is a role model for all women who want to lead a life on their own terms. She is not only a glamorous diva but also a doting mother, who adopted two beautiful daughters – Renee & Alisah.
Recently, we stumbled over a powerful note that Sushmita Sen wrote to her daughter Renne on her 16th birthday. This powerful letter is a reflection of how strong women raise strong daughters:
“My Darling Renée,
You are born to God’s great design, you are born from your mother’s heart, you are here to fulfill your destiny!! Arm yourself with knowledge… it will be your greatest strength one day! Carve your own way… CHOOSE not to drift along. Nurture friendships, honor your word. Respect your teachers, request their help. Remember your dreams… Do one thing every day that scares you!
The only way to go beyond things is to go through them… WORD HARD…..COMMAND RESULTS Demand nothing. Never give up!! Have faith in your abilities & God’s grace. SHARE… LAUGH… FORGIVE!! Be AWARE of Courage and you will always find it. Take chances… they will help you grow. Always wait your turn. Know when to apologize… what can bend… never breaks! Make new mistakes… try not to repeat the old ones.
LIVE IN GRATITUDE….BE POSITIVE Your baby sister & I love you beyond loving & want nothing more than to see you happy… BE HAPPY!!! And finally, I want to know the minute we go beyond “New Zealand” and “Belgium” to another country!! I THANK EVERY DAY THAT HE MADE ME “YOUR” MOTHER!! I AM sooooo proud of you!! It’s time to let the world know just how amazing you are!! I LOVE YOU…..Maa”
