What do you do?
When I came back to Mumbai and scope of biotech industry was limited. I help students especially girls by Counseling to pursue Stem education in India and abroad
Why did you choose this field?
Considering a topsy journey I did a BS in Biomedical Engg from Mumbai ! Then to diversity did a MS in biotech from USA and when we moved back home realised that Counseling was an arena I could not find help when I was looking to build a strong career . Thus with an absolute resolve to make a different and provide the right kind of direction and help I work as a Senior counselor at Knowell which is bespoke consultancy with like minded young venture and people
What do you look at and think, "I wish younger me would have known this was possible"?
Better career path, knowing exactly what options I have and what can I do with them
Why do you love working in STEM?
I wake up everyday knowing I am helping people achieve their career track and encouraging them to take Stem and explore options especially the one who are studying undergraduate degrees. My Stem education helps me think analytically and provide reasoning for all the work I encompass
Best advice for next generation?
Do it ! A Stem education is not just from a point of view of money or career ! A career in speech sciences, business analytics, media management and lots of other interest and under Stem designation. Awareness and understanding how to pursue a stem career in the field of your interest will equip you with the best problem solving skills ever!
