It was at the age of 15. It was when I was invited by Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) to deliver a lecture to 700+ Scientists of ISRO on the topic “The Power of Networking – It is not just a buzz word”. It was an exhilarating moment for me.

I take pride in receiving the title “The Youngest TEDx Speaker in the world” on being invited to speak at the TEDx conference twice when I was 11 years old.

8. There have been a lot of talks about the difficulties during your birth. Did it ever affect your life as a whole?
I was a weak premature baby and was in the incubator for long days. As a child, I had to bear with many health problems. A majority of doctors had given up on me and stated that I would never speak throughout my life. This was very depressing and disheartening for my parents to such an extent that they had given up hope on me. But as every dark cloud has a silver lining, a godsend doctor suggested that my mother should talk to her for 20 hours per day. He quoted “Talk to your child today and the world will talk about her tomorrow”. This theory worked wonderfully for me.
