The fact that I have built a positive and an inspiration environment around me is something that I never thought I’ll be able to do. It happens seldom that people come up to me seeking sound advice for both professional and personal prowess. Being able to build a successful life all on my own in a country which is thousands of miles away from my homeland. I never thought as an adolescent teen that I can achieve so much.

BEST ADVICE FOR NEXT GENERATION?
When I entered in the field of Electrical Engineering, a saw that only a handful of girls pursue this field and this field for some reason is not considered as a first choice for women. My advice for all the young girls out there would be to keep faith in their dreams and follow them with perseverance.
