Where are you from originally and how long have you lived in town?
I am originally from Kerala, India and I have been in North Carolina since August 2011.
Children and Ages?
A 5 year old son and a 3 year old daughter. They taught me so much about life and brought out the best in me.
One thing people would be surprised to know about you…
I have been training myself to do pull-ups and I am nowhere close to the finish line!
Anyone special you’d like to thank for helping you through parenthood?
My very supportive husband and a hands-on doting father to our kids. My parents and in-laws who travelled a long way to help us raise our babies for the first 1 year. My friends who are like family always there for me.
Favorite things to do with your kids?
Read books, play board games, carpool karaoke.
Are you involved in a business venture, a local organization, a creative endeavor, or in the corporate world? Please share!
Fun-e-toys is my business venture where we sell handmade busy books, lighted felt bookmarks, felt Christmas trees. This has been a creative endeavor of mine where I get to combine my passion of crafting and coding.
I work as a Software Quality Engineer for a tech company in Raleigh and also volunteer for a ChickTechRDU.
What does this community mean to you/How has this community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?
Through this community, I got to know about the amazing things moms around the area are doing. I find a lot of fun events around the area where we can spend time with our kids. This community has also been an avenue to showcase my creative business.
