A globe-trotter, at the age of 17, she left India having won full scholarships to study abroad in Singapore and graduated from the National University of Singapore with a major in Computing and minor in German. Since then, she has not just traveled, but lived in different countries across the globe on various student exchange programs, studying life through diverse mirrors of reality, flowing across the earth like a river in pursuit of her destiny!
From Asia to Europe, to Africa to South — Central and North America, she has lived with local families, eating their food, adopting their lifestyles, contributing to their economy, living their culture, navigating extreme realities and harsh conditions, perceiving diverse traditions and religions, for several years to find answers to life’s most pertinent questions. Coming from a conservative family background in India, she had to overcome all limitations to fly out of her comfort zones.
