I have been a self-taught techie since 2009, being a woman in deep tech can be solitary and alienating, because of the proverbial glass ceiling but it is highly rewarding if you have the right team and support, I have been blessed by both. At the very onset, it was. In this past decade, I have been a part of two anthologies, as well – BEING ME and Voices of Courage. I have been a part of several national and international accelerators like WEE, WEQ, and Empower. I have also won several awards and felicitations, some of them are Step up 30 women in tech award, gold medal at IIT delhi while being a part of WEE, finalist at the Anita Borg cohort and represented India at the 1776 challenge, received an award from the WEF in Cairo – as a woman of exceptional excellence, by the president of Egypt.
