I have won many awards in debating, anchoring, singing, elocution, an outstanding student of India, leadership and swimming in my course of learning. In-spite of being differently abled, I like to get challenged and wish to complete them on equal terms. I have won "Leader of the Year" award in my final year of College of Engineering, Pune among 900 students. After graduation I was working for Start-up MNC- Ideapoke as the Head of University industry connect program. Thereafter I joined my family business in the handloom industry as the head of marketing and garnered hands on experience. I have also started my entrepreneurial journey by establishing ‘Surashree Cotton’ as an online brand. I got married in the month of March 2014 and appeared on NDTV goodtimes show Band Baajaa Bride as the season finale bride at prime time. I completed my MBA in marketing and strategy from Faculty of Management Studies, Delhi. Our group won 1st prize in 2 national level short film making competitions in 2015. I have been awarded as the National Winner for Deloitte Maverick “Be the One” competition, for extraordinary achievement in life.I have also been awarded with the title of one of India's Top 50 Most Employable Management Graduates, 2016.
