I am currently working with school girls from a government-aided school and teach them Hope. I also am a Coach, People and Culture Practice Advisor and an Entrepreneur.
Beginning Of Career:
I started my career in a Pharmaceutical company and I learned early in life that we have to learn and we have to be unafraid. The IT industry was just about beginning to take wings at that time and I had to learn to work with tech professionals and also learn to work across boundaries and time zones. As a woman this was particularly challenging.
I have always believed, I am responsible for my career. I learned to negotiate both at home and work. I also chose the path I wanted to pursue with confidence and never ever hesitated to learn. I have also always relied on the advice of my mentors. Learning to love challenges has been the best thing I have imbibed.
I have always had challenges with health, if i have to think of the biggest challenge. It has always been a challenge and I take both short term and long term efforts to sustain my career for 25 years despite of health issues.
A Turning Point In Your Life:
When I had an accident and fractured my spine, it set me back. But I also decided that I have to claw my way back and truly be a survivor.
Personally my parents and professionally I have many mentors, and I greatly admire Mr. NRN Murthy.
Fight for your dreams. Work your way forward.
