Throughout my eight years of experience, working across diverse sectors ranging from auto to lifestyle, I gained a comprehensive understanding of the media landscape.

Setbacks have been inherent in my journey. One notable challenge was the pressure of managing major events, such as the auto expo. To overcome this, I focused on efficient delegation, ensuring a capable team handled specific tasks, thereby lightening the load and fostering collaboration.
Another hurdle involved navigating government events with dignitaries, necessitating adaptability and composure. Clear communication, quick thinking, and building strong relationships proved crucial in these situations.
These challenges underscored the importance of resilience and adaptability. They taught me that setbacks are not roadblocks but opportunities for growth. Embracing teamwork, effective communication, and a positive mindset in the face of adversity has been a key lesson that continues to shape my approach to challenges in the dynamic world of media and communications.

Reflecting on my journey, three qualities have been instrumental in shaping who I am today. Firstly, unwavering perseverance has driven me to consistently overcome challenges and strive for excellence. Secondly, adaptability has enabled me to navigate the dynamic media landscape and embrace evolving industry trends. Lastly, effective communication has been pivotal in building strong connections, whether with clients or within my team. These qualities, coupled with a passion for innovation, have been the cornerstone of my professional growth.

Who are the people who have been the wind behind your wings?

The individuals who have provided support and inspiration throughout my journey have been invaluable. Firstly, my family, with their unwavering encouragement, has served as the bedrock of my strength. My first mentor when I started my professional journey. Secondly, Ms. Ayushi Arora Gulyani, our current Director at Media Corridors, has played a pivotal role in offering guidance and shaping my professional perspective. Additionally, mentors within the industry have contributed significantly by providing insights and advice.
