Being passionate is usually regarded as essential since it keeps the fire to do something amazing alive. When compared to individuals who are merely ‘in it for the money,’ people who are passionate about what they do are more likely to have upbeat outlooks and be able to solve difficulties more quickly. There is no restriction when it comes to possessing a specific amount of passion. Multiple interests are not a negative thing; in fact, they are lovely. Dr Ipsa Shah is one such individual who has consistently demonstrated the validity of this idea. In addition to being a young physiotherapist, she also works as a full-time lifestyle influencer and posts engaging content for her audiences.
Hailing from Vadodara, Gujarat, since her childhood, Ipsa Shah had a little bit of extra love for the world of glamour. Owing to that she even participated in Miss Gujarat 2012 and was crowned the title for the same after competing with a few tough competitors but still facing it. Undoubtedly glamour world did ignite the fire in Ipsa’s heart but still, she had to follow a mainstream career and thus went forward with a course in the medical science branch, physiotherapy. The first two years of her college went into adjusting, doing assignments, getting a hold of this big change and just learning to be a medical student.
However, in her third year, she started posting her outfit of the day photographs on Instagram as she once did an internship that taught her about how content creation will be a good career in the near future, so she did want to give it a shot. Eventually, Dr Ipsa’s page grew significantly and she did start getting great brand collaborations. But at that time content creation as a career was not very much appreciated, hence, Ipsa hid all that from her parents.
While sharing a story about that time, Dr Ipsa said, “So well, it was my sister’s marriage and I gave her some gifts that I got from a brand collaboration. I had hidden the fact from my parents that I was also a content creator while being a medical science student. Then when my parents asked me about the gifts and where did I get them from, I had no answer at all, they obviously got angry. After a lot of convincing and persuading them, they eventually did understand that I can be both Dr Ipsa Shah and content creator Ipsa Shah at once. They have been supportive since then, like for instance now my father himself asks me to get clicked to post on Instagram and I am nothing but grateful.”
Dr Ipsa Shah did put in all her efforts to balance both of her careers which were very different from each other and gracefully became a master of each of them. Now she is a full-time physiotherapist and also creates content that is pleasing and interesting to watch. From belonging to a small city where no one knew about Instagram content creation to actually becoming a successful influencer and doctor, Ipsa did it all. Dr Ipsa Shah is truly an inspiration.
