As a young child I always cherish 2 important learning of my life “Never stop learning and evolving” and always go for giving your 100 percent to what you do, start small but be persistent-Never give up which are the words of my parents always ringing in my mind.
A meek reverent girl, from a North Indian joint family ,born and brought up at Chennai (South India) people keep asking me how come that combination. But one thing despite that was I was blessed to be holding with high values, ethics instilled who my parents have always been open minded to educate me(girl child) to the highest degree of a Masters in VLSI System design from University of Westminster, U.K which I was conferred a scholarship based on my scores.
Little did I know that after pursuing my masters I would meet a friend, Anisha who would ask me, casually to seek learning a Counselling certification, from London and supporting society in UK leading ahead to do my Research in VLSI tech from Edinburg which would be a turning point on having a vision to support child fraternity in India and transform from designing chips to designing lives.
I returned to India and was determined to pursue further pathways on leading my passion of being a thought leader, a visionary, and fulfil the dream to touch lives and create massive change as an “enabler” through training and coaching. I knew there is no look back from my goals and hence, I decided to deep dive into academics, certifications, courses and developing my knowledge and skills as I thought it would help me grow my mindset, broaden my horizon, and make me an achiever.
And yes, I was finally a guiding a lot of societies , NGOs , organisations, and institutions soon into design safe conducive workplaces by creating strategies which are implementable avoid violence, abuse and creating realistic solutions. What stuck with me most is living an ethical life to leave a legacy behind for a safer future to our children & respectable place for all gender all life unleashing the maximum potential in
all of us.
