Astika grew up in Mumbai then moved to the US to complete a Master’s Degree at Berkeley. She’s already worked for EBAY and is now at Microsoft.
It that wasn’t impressive enough, she just won Miss India Seattle-Renton which gives her another platform to be a light to those around her.
Her can-do attitude has given this 20-something boatloads of opportunity already in life, and we can all learn a thing of two from Miss Astika.
THE 3 BEST TAKEAWAYS
- Take up any opportunity that you get, and make the most of it. It’s just going to shape you into a better and much stronger individual. Confidence in yourself is something that you need to build up. Don’t wait for validation from others.
- It’s fine to question your abilities, and question your talents, but you have to have a lot of self belief. You know nobody’s perfect, firstly. If you are having thoughts about your abilities, there are other people also having thoughts about the same.
- Follow your heart. It’s not about winning. Failure is nothing to stop you. So never lose trust in yourself, whatever you think, you can achieve.
