It’s difficult to share so openly without feeling like I’m in some way sounding ungrateful. Before I go any further, know this: without the support of my parents, sister, few close friends and husband I would not be where I am today.
It’s hard not to shake those titles when the first question out of any Indian aunty or uncle’s mouth is typically “So where do you work?” or “What school did you go to?”

My friend Nisha Moodley recently wrote a blog post about her top courageous moments of 2013. I loved it so much that I decided to reflect back on my year and the teachable moments that came along with it.
