It’s 7am, and a young 21yr old is waking up to the birds chirping on a small tree. She is the daughter of a silk farmer who has come out of her silk cocoon to see the outer world, yet with holding values close to her heart.
Introducing our young(est) star Plixian, Soundarya who can be a serious contender for the youngest HR professional achiever award in the state if there is one. Coming from a micro-town Sarajapura (Bengalurites know why it ends with ‘pura’) she counts on rabbits, peacocks as her morning friends.
After a blissful morning, Soundarya is ready to fight the nightmarish Bengaluru traffic to reach office and believes that “work is worship ”. With a regular graduation in BBA, she was doing rounds for interviews and landed up in HealthPlix as a fresher. Little did she know that working at HealthPlix is comparable to being on a rocketship – any seat available is taken immediately.
As a first generation learner in the family, she is the only girl child going out to work as a HR professional. India has many inspiring stories, but it is rare that girls are encouraged at a young age to achieve more.
She recalls Petrina as one of her first bosses who taught her ALL things “HR” and shaped her into an industry ready professional in a matter of a few months. The swift, agile Soundarya – never imagined (including her father) that she will be playing a crucial role at a healthcare startup.
