My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: Navigating my way through the GMAT alongside the comprehensive application process

About me: As a public speaker and student of the performing arts, I’ve constantly thought on my feet and communicated effectively. The stage taught me discipline, team work, adaptability and presence of mind. The culmination of these skills and my passion for business led me to dive deep into the world of business at my dream school, LBS!

After earning a BBA in Entrepreneurship and Finance, I worked at Goldman Sachs in Private Wealth Management. While I enjoyed my first ever corporate job, I knew it wasn’t my calling. I yearned to refine my skills to add more value to fields of my interest. The thought of gaining practical and international exposure and having access to one of the best networks in the world eventually led me to apply to the Masters in Management Programme at LBS, where I could kick start my career.

My parents have always served as my role models, constantly pushing me to dream big and achieve the very best. Since arriving, I have connected with an incredible community of diverse peers who constantly challenge and push me to achieve bigger.

I am passionate about the Retail, Beauty and Health and Wellness sectors. I wish to work in these sectors before my long term goal of being a successful woman entrepreneur in India!
