You are sharp, smart & sassy. Don't try to look around for someone smarter to help you; be that smart person yourself - so that others reach out to you!

WHAT DO YOU DO?

IT Solutions Architect helping Enterprises globally in their digital transformation to Hybrid Cloud & augmenting their business - agility & excellence.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?

Science & Technology always fascinated me. I enjoy experimenting with technology, merging it with psychology & consulting businesses onwards to transformation. I realized in my school days - I liked Computers, Science & Arts equivalently. Many often told me, you need to pick one and forget rest; but I always felt it has to be a strategic balance of all 3 for creating the best ideas.

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

I was one of the youngest Woman Technical Professional to be honored as 'Best of IBM' in 2019. Top 0.1% outstanding performer in a more than 100-yr old Multi-Billion Leading Global Technology company. I figured out early on, out of 10 things I do - 1 would be successful. So, I started doing 10X more things to increase the probability.

WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN STEM?

I love STEM as it is a world of possibilities - I change one parameter and my whole experiment or flow can show me a different end result. I help non-profits for free, above and beyond my regular job to help them while they sweat on ground to make the world better.

BEST ADVICE FOR NEXT GENERATION?

You are sharp, smart & sassy. Don't try to look around for someone smarter to help you; be that smart person yourself - so that others reach out to you!
