“Instead of looking at the past, I put myself ahead twenty years and try to look at what I need to do now in order to get there then.” –Diana Ross

What # would define your life journey?
Favorite website / app:
Pinterest – I think it’s a world to explore creativity.
Someone who inspires you and knowledge they have imparted:

Song that makes you want to dance:
Wonderwall by Oasis
Challenge you’ve faced and how you overcame it:
A lot of times, I have worked with a team who are in different timezones. This year in Google Summer of Code, I was one of the two mentors to a student. All three of us were in different timezones and it was quite challenging to co-ordinate. Initially we struggled, we got confused in the timings and missed initial meetings. We then held a team meeting and understood our timings and what suited best for everyone. We then followed the proper schedule and it went smoothly. It gave me a valuable experience to work with diverse teams.
I want to work for the society. I want to do something that will make a difference to the society. I am not sure what yet but hopefully I will figure it out yet. It need not be fancy but something that spreads happiness.
What knowledge would you impart to women in order for them to REIGN their lives?
I feel we should stop hesitating in speaking up. If we are passionate about something we can find a way and time to do it.
