Ms. Nurturing Sustainable Growth
I’m a dramatic girl from a small town who has big aspirations of coming on a screen in Times Square talking about the impact my company has created.
When I say dramatic, I mean it. I have been a theatre artist all my life, from doing street plays to improve! Each of them has provided me with perspective and the ability to think from someone else’s shoes.

Big Life Wins:
– I was immensely scared when I was asked to mentor an MBA student and a fresh B.Tech grad and introduce them to the world of sales with my experience of 2 years.
– My manager had taken a big leap of faith and entrusted me with the responsibility of guiding these two.
It was hard at the beginning, I used to cry at night because I didn’t find myself as an able leader for the lateral and was annoyed with the fresh grad’s multiple questions. It did teach me an extremely important lesson, a leader needs to be versatile. Both of them required different styles. For the fresh grad, I began hand-holding because he really needed help and with the lateral, I became more organised, introduced him to the world of sales at this company and learnt from him. One of my biggest achievements as a leader was when my fresh grad was praised by the client for excellent execution. I felt so happy and knew I wanted to continue mentoring and helping people. With the lateral, he valued my mentorship and he won multiple deals and credited them to me for teaching him the know-hows. This journey helped me understand myself more and how I do want to create an impact and give them an experience that they remember for a lifetime.
Post MBA Goal:
I want to be a change maker. I want to create an impact and nurture sustainable growth
