While adult life is as complex as it gets with workload and familial responsibilities, the most complicated and confusing phases of our lives are our teenage years.
Don’t we all agree on this?
With the onset of puberty and the evident peer pressure, every teenager is on a unique yet confusing pedestal. Our teenage years are some of the most important years of our lives. Guidance during this phase is very vital and plays a major role in shaping our adult lives.
With a speeding era of technology and the new-normal of the Gen Z, life has not only become more complex but is also speeding by faster than usual. In such situations, teenagers often feel the need to be the best at everything they do. Peer pressure and differing socio economic backgrounds also play a major role in contributing to the stress teenagers face.
The Brand Called You, in its newest episode features Madhavi Jadhav, a dedicated woman and entrepreneur who works towards the wellness of teenagers. Madhavi is the Founder of ThatMate, a platform that provides tech solutions for mental and sexual health of teens. She is a Petroleum Engineer by training and has worked for The Royal Dutch Company. And very interestingly, Madhavi is also a state level boxer!
In conversation with our host Ashutosh Garg, Madhavi shares the story of ThatMate and the incident that led her to start her venture. Madhavi has worked with around 8000 teenagers from Maharashtra, Karnataka and Goa and has collected a wide database about their perspectives.
On the subject of challenges faced by teens, Madhavi highlights how an unstable environment at home with constant arguments and fights between parents can affect the mental health of teenagers.
Domestic violence, personal issues, keeping up with constant peer pressure in school and colleges and struggling with sexual identification are some other major reasons why more and more teenagers are subject to anxiety.
Through her app, Madhavi helps such teenagers understand this very complex phase of their lives and informs them openly about the changes their bodies face in the course of puberty. Her work is thoughtful and a very supportive cause for struggling teens.
Madhavi also shares the story of venturing into boxing and ending up winning a state level championship.
