My professional journey from Bangalore to Bay area has been one that can be described as nothing less than one walked through good conscience and hard work. The opportunity to build a global team over five countries is a product of these two simple yet uncommon pathways.
I express my gratitude to partners from around the world who helped me find my inspiration. My interactions helped me discover that I am inspired by passion, and primarily, my encounters with passionate people keeps me going in the way I do. I strongly believe that it is this passion that will be more important than ever in the coming years.
My advice to youngsters is to value and appreciate humans of all cultures and ethnicities, as false characterisations and prejudices shrinks talent even before it is recognised.

When are you visiting us?
When I travel, I like to think that I am not exploring the places I go to. Id put it another way Im exploring myself and how far I can push myself, and how far I can go.
Travel is different from tourism. Travel is learning about new types of people, different ways of being. We very quickly get used to our ways of life, and its hard to see beyond that narrow scope. When you travel, you realise how small you are, how limited your own way of seeing is, how broad the scope of culture can be. Seeing the changing volatility of the places and culture around you is different youre growing with it. Seeing it change doesnt expose you to people who have grown up away from you and have completely different ways of perceiving the world. Real travel is in the people you meet, the insight from conversations you have. Even observing them can bring about profound insight.
If there is a place Id really recommend to someone, it would be Colombia. Its my favourite of all the places Ive visited so far. The people over there are so warm, so welcoming. Theyre the most hospitable people Ive met. Theyre so open to showing you around. This, combined with the wonderful food and topography, makes it truly unforgettable. Its such a pity that in ten years theyve made tremendous progress as a country but we here still tend to relate the country to only one things drugs. Travel helps with this, it helps us see multiple stories instead of one, unverified story we have of an entire place and people.

Im technically from Andhra Pradesh but I grew up in Kuwait. When I was growing up I saw all these beautiful, inspiring women all around me, like my mother and my cousins.
I started to wear a hijab in ninth grade. I was in Kuwait then, and many people over there are hijabies, so it wasnt like I was out of place. That all changed when I moved to Bangalore to do engineering. I was the only hijabie at college.
Slowly, other girls began to approach me. They told me that they wanted to wear hijabs too, but they were scared that they would have to start wearing plain, baggy clothes in the name of modesty. They asked me how I managed to find modest, fashionable clothing. I began to give them tips. The number of girls increased, and I created an instagram account to help them out instead.
A girl came up to me once and told me how she had always worn the plain black burqa for lack of other options, and that made her very shy in public. She was afraid people would perceive her as subdued or even elderly. It took a toll on her self-confidence. She told me that I should spread my ideas, so I decided to start a blog instead and inspire young women who want to take up the path I have taken but not compromise on their individual expression. You can be graceful and beautiful even when you take up a life of modesty!
I have just started to do DIYs, and I do style decodes for movies and revamp them to make them modest. I write articles on lifestyle as well, helping my readers with things like beating procrastination!
I love my life of modesty. Ive never seen it as a form of oppression, as I know it tends to be perceived. It was my own personal choice. I quite like that it is easier for people to focus on my intellect and personality as opposed to my outward appearance. It gives me a sense of identity that I love, and it isnt a barrier to anything I do. I feel empowered by my choice and the fact that I have the courage to display what I truly believe in openly.
