As a millennial child I was born into quite an interesting time. Father Indian, mother German, growing up in a German small town wasn’t very easy. I hated to look different than everyone else and my own cultural backgrounds were confusing me to the point that it was hard to know my own identity. Early this year I was invited to the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington D.C. to speak about my life and faith journey and I told the world how I found my identity in God. I still can hardly believe I stood there and spoke in front of all those world leader, but then – I can hardly believe most of the crazy rollercoaster ride God has set me on since the past 30 years! Wow. Has it been this long already! It feels like I am still just fresh out of college, taking the world on step at a time and not too sure where I’m actually heading towards. But I guess that’s the journey of faith for you. Just take every day as God gives it and let Him be the light on your path towards becoming the best version you can be, to fulfil your purpose on this earth and to becoming wiser and more like Him with every passing year.
Growing up in then almost a village sized town, I never thought I would ever get to break out and see the world. But truly, God had different plans! In the past 10 years I have seen the most stunning places, met the most interestingly beautiful people and travelled to every corner of the world. Well, a few are left. A dream of mine is to travel to South America! Who wants to come with me see the Machu Pichu? Let’s go!
I am so grateful for this amazing career God has set me in as well! Wow, I had never dared to dream of to one day actually be in a Shah Rukh Khan movie, and best of all – play a girl from a my actual home town, Frankfurt! It’s crazy how life goes full circle. Now don’t get too excited, my role is just a cameo appearance, but to me, this means so much more. Having been accepted by the Indian film industry like this is really hard for any outsider. Working with Imtiaz Ali and some of the biggest names in Bollywood over the past five years of my career has been incredible! The support and love I received is something I often can’t explain to myself why. I’m just very grateful for this life I am living and that I get to share it with all of you. This is the reason for this very blog Evelyn’s Secrets, to share my life with you. I’m overwhelmed by all your love, especially on my Birthday this week.
Ok enough sentimental speeches 🙂 I know there is a lot waiting for me this year! God always has a gift for you that is greater than you can imagine, so let Him be the stuart of your life, and lead him into greatness!
