Life and Work with Claudia Khandelwal

Today we’d like to introduce you to Claudia Khandelwal.

Claudia, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
As a child, I remember how I used to look into the little things and tried enhancing these items with my imagination and creativity. I, later in life, found myself spending long hours drawing and painting to find peace within my own life. Art is an expression of the reality and what it could be if we just put a bit of creativity to it, I have studied Fine Arts most of my life and now, I am the Founder of Galante Beauty, it brings great happiness to see my art expressed in my clients image, the smile of happiness when they see the beauty within them is my thrive.

Has it been a smooth road?
I can say life, in general, is a struggle, I had to face the cruel reality of domestic violence which caused my dream from happening later in life, this struggle only made me stronger to push myself to be who I am now, it was quite a difficult road as people try to drag you to the floor with their words and actions, I have to say to our young woman and men is to keep pushing yourself and never give up because at the end you know your worth so much more, heads up and keep strong.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Galante Beauty Salon – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I work with different mediums in art, I practice face and body painting, acrylics, pastels, artist markers, charcoal, and pencil.

I’m also a cosmetologist and makeup artist.

Do you think there are structural or other barriers impeding the emergence of more female leaders?
The biggest obstacle for me was the fear of begging and fear of failure. I, at times, felt it was going to be nearly an impossible thing to make it happen due to income and responsibilities.
