Dream of reaching the stars.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

I'm a Tech Edupreneur who is working towards empowering the youth globally on their educational journey by leveraging technology.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?

I feel I was destined to do it. As all events in my life brought me closer and closer to making this a reality. I have been faced with disappointments and failures but all of that has made me stronger and given me the experience of pursuing this in a better way.

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

Being a part of the startup ecosystem is something that I feel I could have known at an earlier age. It has given me immense knowledge and experience.

WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN STEM?

STEM is a creative teaching approach. If done properly it allows for discovery and exploration, is challenging, let's you innovate.
I wake up every morning and look forward to making a child/young person be their best and make them feel fulfilled by helping them overcome a challenge.
The best feeling for me is when someone tells me that they are happy to achieve a milestone in their life just because they followed my advice, or my mentoring was helpful for them in some way, or something that I said meant for them so much.
It really is mindblowing!

BEST ADVICE FOR NEXT GENERATION?

That's my motto: Inspire the youth especially girls to achieve what they dream of. Because if being a girl they can dream of reaching the stars it means they can achieve it too.
Don't limit yourself because you're a girl. STEM is as much for girls as it is for boys and we need more girls to be in this to have more role models for our gender.
