A year ago, I was fresh out of college. Had dreams in eyes, but feet were firmly grounded in harsh reality. Having lived with working professionals during college, I had a glimpse of what life at work signified.
One year later, my eyes are more open. Financial independence has allowed me a better way of life (though my freedom is limited by loan).
I started work at Mu Sigma with a chill account and a cool team. Since the median age in this company is pretty low, there’s always a college-like environment around. Most people are unmarried, living in shared flats. The shared experience of it brings us closer.
Since August, when my account changed, things have gotten a little more hectic. But thankfully, I am surviving.
Below is a picture of myself with my parents, this day last October. It is a selfie, taken in a hotel room on the day of my joining. My father was suffering from a bad bout of cold and fever. My mother was also sick. But the smiles in the photo symbolizes their pride in their daughter!
