What were you doing before you joined Mahindra?

I did a summer of study abroad in Spain, a summer of product development work in South Africa, and an internship as Chief of Staff at Omada Health, a behavioral change start-up in San Francisco. I also tried to start my own medical device company, ran a pop-up donut shop, and acted in plays.

 

Why did you decide to join Mahindra?

Because of the flexibility and uniqueness of the opportunity. I can work on and have exposure to many different companies here. We are given a lot of room for initiative as well. Plus, the challenges of working in India at this exciting time in its development will be invaluable in shaping me as a thinker and strategist.

 

What is it like working and living in India?

It can be difficult at times, but it is really wonderful over all. I thrive on being highly stimulated and constantly challenged and India is a great fit for that.

 

What has been your favorite experience so far in India?

Eating a five course Bengali dinner with unlimited drinks at a chef’s home in Bandra for only 45 USD per person.
