"I come from the humble town of Kerala, but I grew up amidst very ambitious people and so, I always had an innate desire to rise.
At a young age, I realized that there's a lot beyond my little world in Trivandrum. So, I left my hometown to pursue studies in Mumbai, and that gave me the wings to fly without fear. I've faced many challenges in the course of my career - personal and professional. I still remember the time when my father was suffering from cancer when I had to quit my full-time job and switch to freelancing to be able to care for him.
But what helped me grow was the attitude I've developed over the years - to show up no matter what and to bring my best to the table. My father, whom I lost in 2016, was and still is the supreme force behind my persistence and honesty at work and the faith to keep going."
