[Video] I am FedEx: Classical dance from India

October 22, 2013

I don’t just love dance – I respect dance. It allows someone to keep their body and mind free and fresh without focusing time on gym, diet and so on. When I go for dance class I really forget what the rest of the world is doing. It’s just simply tap your feet and move your body as the music goes. Dance helps to make your mind fresh; after performing one feels so relaxed from deep inside.

My many years of Indian semi classical ballet performing came into the spotlight when FedEx gave me the opportunity to film an I am FedEx video about my passion.  Number 13 is my very lucky number and so I was very excited to learn that the shooting of this video was filmed on the 13th day of the month! The production team made me so relaxed and helped me feel that yes, we are a family at FedEx. 

Throughout the whole interview I shared all my childhood memories, my daily office routine, and it really was hard but rewarding work! I have given my best to portray my country India globally, and I am really honored to have this opportunity.

    Hi Afsana, I enjoyed watching your video. I am also a trained Bharatanatyam dancer, though I started my classical dance training little late but nonetheless, my age didn’t stop me from going to class with five year olds and learning the beauty of dance.

    Dance really does bring peace to mind and your story is very inspiring. Happy dancing!

    FedEx is definitely a great company to work for and I like how FedEx reached out to you. That’s awesome.

    Best regards,
    Subhashni
