“Dare to pivot; sometimes, the boldest moves lead to the most fulfilling chapters.”
In the corridors of Delhi University, my undergraduate years in psychology were a canvas waiting to be painted. Delving into the intricacies of the human mind, I found my passion for understanding and aiding the complexities that reside within. Interning at Tihar Jail and Delhi prisons for a community outreach project opened my eyes to the power of psychology in changing lives.
After completing my undergrad in psychology, I realized that I did not want to narrow my career to being a psychologist. Instead, I decided to pursue ‘MA in Society and Culture’ from IIT Gandhinagar, a research-heavy and interdisciplinary course. There, I gained a broader perspective and valuable two years of theoretical and practical understanding of various areas of life. Little did I know that this foundation would become crucial in shaping my future endeavors. The interdisciplinary experience became the harmonious bridge that connected my love for psychology with a broader understanding of the world.
Navigating Career Crossroads: From Academia to Corporate Realities
Venturing into the complex world of business as an ‘Academic Associate’ at IIM Kozhikode for around a year, I sensed a calling for practical corporate experience. A risky pivot from my academic and research background unfolded, driven by the bold pursuit of passion.
A brief stint as a Customer Relations Manager in a startup provided a glimpse into the intricate workings of B2C businesses. Yet, a looming dilemma cast a shadow on my path—PhD or the unpredictable journey into a new role and work setting?
It All Began to Make Sense When I Joined WrittenlyHub
The decision to join WrittenlyHub marked a turning point. Initially eyeing a Business Development role, fate intervened.
