Software Engineer, JPMorgan Chase & Co.
Being brought up in rural-based regional medium schools, I struggled a lot with my communication skills and to keep up with my peers in college. My mentor from Katalyst, Ms. Ishviene S played a major role in improving my English and pronunciation skills, not to mention the way I dressed. She looked after me like a mother.
Through Katalyst, I got to participate in a hackathon by JP Morgan & Chase and I cracked it to get the job as a Software Engineer. After hearing my story Ms. Lori Beer [CIO, JPMC] nominated me for JPMC’s external brand campaign as its ambassador. Out of lakhs of people working in JPMC, you can see only 20 odd people on their career website as ‘Our People’, and I’m one of them.
I would like to set an example for all women who come from disadvantaged backgrounds. Do not worry about external factors. All that matters here is your competency, and Katalyst helps to nourish that regardless of your income, background, or beauty. Believe me, the best accessory a girl can carry is her self-confidence!
