Meet Northeast India’s 1st lady bouncer from Meghalaya’s capital town Shillong- Claudia Jessica Bamon

At first sight, when I met Jessica for an interview, she looked like some celebrity who had less time yet agreed to do an interview with a group of media persons because, well, of course she deserved all the limelight owing to her various achievements.  However, as we proceeded to be seated in her car so she would not get late for gym, I saw a humble, hardworking and a motivated girl next door who is not only herself inspired but possessed the ability to inspire many other people who often give up on their dreams. As we drove past the busy streets of Police Bazaar to our destination Laban, she offered me her inspiring story in just a span of 15 minutes and those few minutes of conversation were totally enough to inspire me and I hope this piece inspires all you readers too.
