Peace is the most basic requirement for a happy life, but it has become the most difficult goal to achieve in today’s world of conspiracies and technological advancements. The brightest minds are also being taught how to design combat weapons and how to defend against adversaries. People have become more egotistical, cruel, and inhumane. Helping nature and humanity is now confined to books and Grandma’s stories. Everyone wishes for peace, but no one makes an effort or takes action to achieve it. However, a few people, such as Dr Thejo Kumari Amudala, are working to bring peace to the world and, in the process, to make humans more humane.
Dr Thejo Kumari Amudala was born in Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh, to Muni Venkateswarulu and Kinnera Prameela Devi. She comes from a middle-class family and received her basic education at the local government school. She is a hard worker who has been involved in social activism since she was in school. She used to look after other people, work for them, and, if necessary, take their side and support them during difficult times. She is more determined and desperate for a good education. Because of this burning desire, she has obtained degrees from top-tier institutions such as the Indian Institute of Management and the Indian School of Business. She has studied Business Management in top Business schools like Harvard, Stanford, London Business School, Emas, etc.
She also received honorable doctorates from globally renowned universities like Harvard University, United States of America, and Cambridge University, United Kingdom. She has also received many other good doctorates in the field of Social Service and Business Leadership.
Dr Thejo Kumari Amudala is a social activist, entrepreneur, and global peace ambassador. In the year 2019, she founded Thejas Solutions, which provides services in clothing, information technology, digital marketing, herbal products and jewellery business. It is well known that entrepreneurship is a mal-dominated field, which has presented a significant challenge for her, but she is unafraid of the industry and believes in herself. This enabled her to accomplish more and move ahead of more seasoned professionals.
She is the recipient of many awards such as Abdul Kalam Diamond Sparking Award, Rashtra Prerana Award, Rashtriya Seva Samaj Ratna Award, Mahatma Gandhi Excellence Award, Gandhi Peace Award, Global Icon Award, Dynamic Business Entrepreneur Award, World Iconic Leadership Award, Rashtrapthi Award, Bharatha Nari Ratna Award, Nation’s Pride Award, Mahatma Gandhi Excellence Award, International Brilliance Award, Nelson Mandela NOBLE PEACE Award for Global Peace and Human Excellence in Social Service and the list goes on.

When asked who she looks up to as a role model, she says Nelson Mandela because of his philanthropic contributions towards the society. He is well-known throughout the world for his generosity, good nature and as one of the greatest leader who tackled institutional racism.
She also is a follower of Mother Theresa and Mahatma Gandhi. Hence, she loves peace and always tries to spead love and harmony in the society through her work.
Even though numerous achievements in her life are worth discussing, she was recently awarded the highly prestigious Nelson Mandela NOBLE PEACE Award for Global Peace and Human Excellence in Social Service. This award is given for one’s active role in building peace and serving humanity through social welfare activities.
