“I was more inclined towards becoming a Techie from the very beginning of my career.
After my graduation, I joined one of the software companies as a software developer.
Alike everybody, I had my family issues penetrating into my mind all day and night.
One fine day, I attended a tech event in Bangalore wherein I came to know about tech communities. I was more eager to become a part of the community, which was my interest and industry.
I met Lakshya, the Former Global Head of Google Developers Group (GDG), India. She introduced me to many other community organizers.
That was when I joined GDG Chennai Chapter and consequently became the Ambassador of WTM Chennai.
Women TechMakers (WTM) is a global community for tech, exclusively for women, hosted by Google.
I started organizing events and gave speeches to many students and professionals on different technical genres and angles.
Being the eldest in the family, I had the responsibility to follow the morals that my family educated me with.
My entire family was very supportive when I came late at night after organizing events.
I would dedicate my weekdays to the company I work for and the weekends to my community. This made me develop the quality of teaching my juniors and other students how to shine when you choose to be a techie.
I’m very proud in looking at both my younger sisters approaching a positive method to grow up higher to make themselves financially independent.
My mother was very strict in making me an independent woman, which I’m today.”
