She is currently based out of NCR and leaves for the Himalayas when she struggles with the writer’s block! Her journey began back in 2016, at the age of twenty-three, when she quit her first job with the dream of becoming a storyteller. She packed a rucksack and left Mumbai, where she worked as an Area Sales Manager, in search of her true self. She met people with extraordinary stories – the travellers, the entrepreneurs, the artists, the visionaries and the saints, who inspired her to the core and gave a new direction to her life. She felt that she was meant to be a storyteller, stronger than ever.
She has travelled to 13+ countries; sailed to the Andamans, camped with the Indian Jawans in Arunachal Pradesh, scuba dived in the Indian Ocean, swum with the dolphins in the Mediterranean, danced to Bollywood songs on the streets of Prague, floated free for hours on the beach in the Island of Mallorca and wishes to travel the world before she dies. Every year, she spends time in the coastal village of Palolem in Goa as she feels she belongs there. A minimalist at heart, with every passing day, she finds herself moving farther from the never-ending quest of owning material possessions and a step closer to owning a vast ocean of experiences.
A post-graduate in management from the prestigious B-school IMI, New Delhi and a graduate in Computer Science and Technology, Stuti has worked with corporates like HSBC and Coffee Day Beverages before testing the entrepreneurial waters.
