Namrata Giri

I am a 37-year-young mother, writer, dreamer, fitness enthusiast and...oh yes, an Economist too. Like any average woman my age, I juggle between caring for my kids, running a house and a full-time career. I help run an IT start-up AcesoCloud Inc. In the past, I have worked as a management consultant with companies of global repute including one of the Big4s. I am an Economist by vocation and am currently pursuing my P.hD in Strategy. I have also been a student of Psychology and my innate interest in observing and studying human behavior makes me see and interact with people with empathy and sensitivity. I am an avid reader and passionate about writing. I am a trained painter and a fitness enthusiast. When not working in the office or working out in the gym, I spend my time baking, painting, trekking, biking, running and observing little things as the world goes by doing its job. From having “no time for anything” when I worked full-time to now having time for everything, I have learned the art of balancing my different roles and prioritizing people and activities that add value to my life. It's not only about me, it's also about millions of women like me, dealing with the issues related to work, parenting, relationships, fitness, health, nutrition, money, failures, victories, dreams and disappointments and a million other conflicting priorities. Amidst all this, is a woman, a girl, a child, an individual who yearns to be her own. I am sure hundreds of women will identify with me because I am real.
