Hello! I’m Megha.
I’m passionate about enabling people to thrive – by helping themselves and helping others. I pursue this in a variety of ways, and don’t fit into any neat career box. But since we’re all used to boxes, here’s an attempt to tell you what I do, based on what I’m good at and what I care about:
Now, as pleased as I am with the matrix above, it mostly looks cool, intellectualizes who I am, and is totally devoid of the heart and soul that really make me who I am. The truth is, I've done the 'being professional' bit for too long now and its over-rated. I want to bring the personal into the professional. I want to be kickass at whatever I do, but also be open about how hard it is, what I'm struggling with, and what I'm learning. I want to continue using 'itsjustmegha' as my 'professional' email address and username because I want silly and informal to coexist with confident and reliable. I want to talk about the constant internal critique as well as the external pressures and expectations that hold me back from doing what I want to do and being who I want to be. And thus my journey informs my work. I'm constantly learning how to help myself thrive, and my challenges help me empathise with and work alongside others in their journey to thrive.
Other stuff that makes me, me:
- I feel at home in both Bombay and NYC, and primarily reside in Bombay
- I'm happiest when I'm dancing!
- I'm a Starting Bloc fellow - a community of inclusive and inspiring individuals who want to make the world a better place
- I love the word 'eudaimonia', which means human flourishing and links being happy with being fulfilled
