“I am an electronics and communications graduate turned psychologist. Hahah! Quite a contrast, isn’t it? I have been practicing as a psychologist for over ten years now. I’ve always been told I am a multi- faceted individual. I think it is true. I work as a theatre artist too, in and around Hyderabad. Since I am also a lowkey movie-buff, I have some inclination towards acting. Apart from my love for acting, I am also a trained classical dancer.
I have been working in the Study-Abroad sector for six years now. It takes a lot for these students to take the plunge of moving to India or outside of India for student programmes. It just goes on to show that these young minds are ready to move out of their comfort zone to learn something and achieve.
The student programmes I have designed are aimed at creating a global village of knowledge and cultures. It is to create a platform for people from different walks of life with similar interests willing to widen their horizons.
There are small things about our culture and our country that we take for granted. Until we have an international student make a big deal about it, we refuse to give it the importance that our tradition deserves.
I personally believe in personal touch in everything we do. It has always been important for my family and me to invite the students to our home and spend some time. In fact, they all even attended my brother’s wedding virtually.
Pandemic has been hectic for me in terms of counselling sessions. I was asked to review a college essay for a family friend’s daughter who was looking to apply for colleges in the US. Without giving it a second thought, I reached out to some of my students from the exchange programme. Trust me! all they said was, “You carry on with your work and we will take care of this.” Such small and personal gestures make the bond stronger.”
