Big Life Wins:
I coped with and powered through clinical depression from early 2019. I’m a mental health champ at community camps. Under my leadership at Interact, we raised funds for water purification devices at homes for the specially abled, and to send local children abroad for exchange programs. I was part of the first such program in Australia.
Post MBA Goal:
My aim is to work with, and eventually, lead investment managers focused on emerging markets. AUMs of the largest domestic institutions in India are very small vis-a-vis the western world. I also plan to work towards increasing access to education and opportunities for marginalized groups in India, especially underprivileged women.
