  • A Brief about yourself and how you describe your own personality and persona.
  • Audrey Hepburn once said “True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.” I believe anyone can be beautiful with confidence and a positive attitude. I am a grateful daughter, lucky wife and a first-time-mom. Above all, I am a WOMAN who is fiercely independent, passionate and creative.??Professionally I am a Tech Writer in an established Service-based IT industry, although my experience goes to different areas of writing like music, art, culture, food etc.,. I am a true IT professional by the day, and a multi-tasking genie by the night. After my short stint in Zee Kannada as a News Caster, I worked as Editor, Content Writer for several online portals in Singapore. ??During my spare time, I am a mommy-blogger who likes to share the unfiltered side of motherhood. As a self-proclaimed fitness addict, I workout hard but play harder with both my family and my 18-months old toddler. I have this philosophy in life that do good and good will come back to you. I believe volunteering time, money, or energy to help others doesn't just make the world better—it also makes me better. For the simple reason that it makes me feel good. I represent the educated, middle class woman of our society who knows what she wants, has equal opportunities as any man and is not afraid to speak out her mind.    

  • Your Achievements that makes you feel high.
  • Being a mother is simply the greatest achievement of my life. It has taken me on an unexpected journey that can constantly surprise, educate and confuse me. Motherhood has taught me that the most joy can be found in the everyday in small little things.. The most extraordinary thing about motherhood for me was– finding a piece of myself. I keep learning more from my toddler than she learns from me.?

  • The quote or saying that encourages you.
