Born and raised in Mumbai, I have spent all 23 years of my life in this city. My father is a businessman and mother, a homemaker and also the strongest influence in my life so far. Apart from inculcating strong values and religious beliefs, they have always encouraged me to follow my curiosity and try different things. It is due to the last of their aforementioned efforts, that I developed deep interests in reading, painting, sketching, photography, travelling and dancing. In spite of being extremely naughty as a child, I always took my academics seriously and made it to the dignified ‘top list’ in school. After completing my high school education in Commerce, I wanted to explore Finance more so I decided to pursue my Bachelors in Accounts & Finance from Narsee Monjee College of Commerce and Economics (University of Mumbai). Here I got an opportunity to meet people not only from diverse backgrounds but also from different parts of the world. After completing three years with excellent grades I landed myself a job with Barclays, one of the best companies that came on campus that year, as a junior business analyst in the Markets division of the Investment Bank.
