What are the most valuable skills that you took from your education at RSM?
"Working with a diverse set of people – not limited to only nationalities, but also a multitude of backgrounds and industries. RSM experience helped me to realize that diversity indeed breeds creativity and innovation. The fact that despite my background in architecture and design, I was able to contribute as much as well as add value to a business environment gave me the confidence to walk out and get the job that I had always wanted."

What was the most memorable moment at RSM?
"There is hardly one moment that I can pin-point at. The numerous parties, food from every corner of the world, and to get to know a feisty set of people – these are memories of a lifetime."

How would your former classmates describe you?
"Friendly, reliable and a little bit lost in my own world!"

Name three things that make you smile each day.
"My parents back in India (I call them almost every day!), evenings spent with my husband, especially after a long day’s work and the fact that I still manage to learn a new thing almost every day at work."

What is your greatest passion in life?
"Apart from my family, it is reading! I am voracious reader, and read just about everything and at every possible free time."
