You are destined for greatness, so don't listen to those voices in your head that tell you otherwise.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

I help companies make better decisions. From formulating business scope and needs to delivering insights, analysts work with the core of a business, which is data.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?

Ever since I was a kid, I had this desire to pursue something different.
I wanted to navigate my career in forensic and criminal psychology, but eventually ended up pursuing computer science. During my undergrad, I kept myself involved with various leadership opportunities. These experiences helped me grow and believe in my individual perspective. While working for a non profit as a CSR Head, I knew my true calling was helping organisations and communities.
So I took a chance and moved to the US to pursue business analytics. My curiosity and passion for investigating data acted as a medium to bridge the gap between my intention and the impact I want to create.

WHAT DO YOU LOOK AT & THINK, "I WISH YOUNGER ME WOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS WAS POSSIBLE?"

1) I wish younger me would have known that I can inspire other females to be fearless!
2) I wish younger me would have known that dreaming big is not a problem just because I am a female.
I am checking off goals and dreaming big everyday!
3) I wish younger me would have known that saying no won't make me impolite as all it has done is made me more confident.
4) I wish younger me would have known that female friendships and mentorship exist.
Currently, I am advancing my skill set and working towards promoting diversity and mentorship.

WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN STEM?

1) The learning never stops
2) There are multiple ways to solve a problem which leads to optimization and innovation
3) You are always looking up to someone and feeling inspired
4) It is the future.

BEST ADVICE FOR NEXT GENERATION?

You are destined for greatness, so don't listen to those voices in your head that tell you otherwise.
