LUWS - LightupwithShua Podcast

Podcast in English & Urdu - YEAR 2023 

My name is Shua and I am the owner of LUWS ACADEMY LLC (USA) and the founder & host of lightupwithShua, a weekly podcast on Conscious Living and Parenting.

I hope you all have passed through the Covid times without too much loss and some good also came out of it. The virus is still hanging around us and we have learned to live with it to some extent. May this pandemic be a learning lesson for us all and goes away sooner than later. 

This is a bilingual podcast. So far I have published about 100 plus episodes. Season 1 was a time of learning and making connections. I had some amazing guests who were supportive and graciously took time out to come to the studios in Groton, MA or be on Skype or available in Person. That is still happening. I feel very lucky and blessed to have amazing guests on my shows.

Season 2 started with interviews with younger people in Urdu as well. Did some travel shows while in Pakistan, more coming on that.

Season 3 started with  Environment and Climate Change. Hope you had a chance to watch or listen to it.

LightupwithShua podcast is for people like you and me, who are full of life, always learning, striving to get better and move on to mastery.

My podcast may help people, individuals, parents and anyone who is willing to evolve and grow by listening to rich conversations from people of diverse backgrounds and experiences.

You and I can together learn to solve and transform our problems to solutions. How? Well by listening to the stories of amazing individuals from all age groups, all kinds of professions, cultures, and ethnicities. In addition to listening and doing call to action on the lightupwithShua website and on the shows, you will have the opportunity to attend live shows on Facebook, join the free Facebook group and attend workshops, retreats and programs that are coming up this year 2023. So, stay tuned by visiting the website, instagram, Linkedin and facebook pages.

A thought:

When I was a little younger person, I would have liked to listen or watch similar programs where I could hear diverse viewpoints from multicultural backgrounds and learn from people talking about diverse topics.

I believe this podcast is also helpful for people who are not able to travel far away for whatever reason and get this valuable information in their hands so conveniently through smart devices and other smart technology today. 

I believe that someone, somewhere will benefit from these fascinating conversations doesn't matter who you are. This is to serve you! And I think at the end of the day, that is what matters, what do you think?

In addition to you learning and benefiting from our conversations on LUWS - lightupwithshua, my esteemed interviewees have expressed that my thoughtful questions provides them the opportunity to think about things they never thought of before or didn’t articulate it the way they do during our interviews. So, I guess I am happy to bring mostly the best in my interviewees! ;-)

Some of my guests have expressed that their time with me during these interviews will help them to further ponder and transcend through similar issues discussed. So, my hope is that you will also think about the questions and our conversations in ways that will benefit you and those with whom you would like to share these conversations.   

Those who are regular listeners of this podcast might have gathered that I am enjoying the process of meeting people and learning from them. For me, interviewing people is like reading an infinite book, a book with never ending chapters with captivating stories.

This LUWS podcast is for people who are open to the possibilities and ready to learn. Beautiful souls looking to find any opportunity to broaden their horizon, challenge their limits and share their knowledge and experiences. Thank you for listening and watching. And if you like this podcast or any episode, please feel free to send me your comments and feedback!

A little more reminder for dear listeners, you will find guests from Native American tribes, African Americans, Pakistani Americans, Jewish Americans, Indian Americans, Swedish, Pakistani, and so many more. This is quite fascinating and not sure how many podcasts have such a diverse line of interviewees. 

I am a Muslim, Pakistani-American, born in Saudi Arabia, woman, and immigrant, who hosts and interviews Indians/Hindus, Christian-Evangelists, Rabbis, students, people of all genders, housewives, professionals, entrepreneurs, you name it!

This I think is called inclusivity and diversity. Hope you can appreciate and learn with me on this journey! In one podcast, you can find guests who are multinational, multi-faith, multicultural, non-faith, and all, talking about one topic! They are all lighting up our world with great insight and a message of hope!

And lastly, please subscribe, share, rate and review. This will be a tremendous gift to me from you.

Thank you!
