My Story

I was the golden child — the one who had it all figured out. The one with the perfect grades, the perfect resume, the perfect life. I did everything right. I checked all the boxes. 90% in school. Check. Engineering from a top college in India. Check. Masters in USA. Check. Making 6-figures at a Fortune 500 company. Check. I kept checking all the boxes but never checked in on myself.

I was everything everyone wanted me to be, everything I thought I was supposed to be. I had all these achievements, all these social statuses, all these external markers of success but I never had myself. I had it all, yet I had nothing. In the pursuit of external validation, I lost myself. I became a stranger to my own desires, my own passions, my own truth. I was living a life that looked enviable from the outside but felt empty on the inside. I was a shell of a person, a hollow vessel filled with the expectations and opinions of others.

The life I was living.

I know something had to change. I had to change. I had to heal. I had to create myself again. I had to get in alignment with my true self. Thus began the process of unbecoming. After sleepless nights, countless journaling sessions, a lot of questioning, and experimenting, I have learned to prioritize myself. To take care of myself, to love myself, to be true to myself. I learned to listen to my own voice, to follow my own path, to live my own life.

It wasn’t easy. It’s still not easy. But it’s worth it. Because now, I’m not just living — I’m alive. I’m not just existing — I’m thriving. I’m not just the golden child — I’m me.

And it’s a story that is still being written, with each new day, each new choice, each new moment of unbecoming and becoming. I am on a journey of self-discovery, of self-love, of self-acceptance. The journey of being who I am, not who others want me to be. The journey of living my life, my way.

My Mission

My mission is simple: to help you unbecome who you think you are, so you can become who you truly are.

I believe in you. I believe in your potential. I believe that you are so much more than you’ve been told. So much more than you’ve allowed yourself to be. I believe that you have the power within you to heal, to grow, to transform. To create a life that’s beyond your wildest imagination.

You have a light inside you, a power, a brilliance that’s waiting to be unleashed. But too often, we dim our own light. We hold ourselves back. We let our past, our fears, our doubts define us.

FYI: I am not a monk, not a therapist, not a guru. Just a simple human being figure things out, just like you.

I’m here to help you break free. To help you let go of everything that’s been holding you back. To help you discover the real you, the infinite you, the you that’s been waiting to express.

I don’t have all the answers, but I have a strong belief that within each of us lies a wellspring of wisdom, creativity, and potential waiting to be tapped. A belief that no matter where we’ve been or what we’ve been through, we all have the innate capacity to heal, to grow, to transform our lives in profound and beautiful ways.

You are so much more than what meets the eye
