On March 21, 2023, Nickelodeon, in association with Orchids The International School, hosted an engaging forum with industry leaders on the importance of nurturing self-love in children. The panel discussion, titled ‘I am #OneOfAKind: Nurturing Self-Love in Children,’ attracted a diverse audience of over 200 participants, including parents, educators, social media influencers, and children.

The panel consisted of renowned personalities, including Neha Dhupia, actor and mother; Dr. Swati Popat Vats, President of Podar Education Network and Early Childhood Association of India; Dr. Bharti Rakheja, self-love coach and Founder of ‘I am Enough’ society; and Archana Rushal Padhye, HOD, Special Needs and Counselling Department, Orchids The International School.

Self-love is an invaluable skill for children to learn. The discussion highlighted the importance of understanding the significance of being #OneOfAKind from a young age. Being comfortable in one’s own skin can encourage young minds to celebrate their individuality, and challenge societal norms and conventions in the long run.


Opening the discussion, Neha Dhupia stated that in today’s society, children are exposed to increasing pressure to conform to societal norms and expectations.

By embracing our own individuality and practicing self-love, we can show our children that it’s okay to be different and encourage them to do the same.

Dr. Swati Popat Vats emphasized the role of schools and educators in helping children embrace their unique qualities. She stated that every child is unique and deserves to be celebrated for who they are.

By working together as educators, we can create a supportive environment where students feel valued, respected, and empowered to pursue their dreams.

Dr. Bharti Rakheja added that every child deserves to know their worth and celebrate their uniqueness. Being a self-love coach, she has witnessed first-hand the transformative power of self-love in people’s lives. By teaching kids to love themselves unconditionally, we can inspire a generation of confident, resilient individuals who are equipped to navigate life’s challenges with grace and authenticity.
