  • Q: What is your favourite memory at Prodigy so far?
    A: My favourite memory so far was when a Product Manager was so impressed with my work that he said, “We want every Scrum Master in our organization to be a clone of Monalisa.” That was the best compliment I have ever received.

  • Q: How did you become interested in the tech industry?
    A: During my college days the IT industry was taking a leap. I found it challenging to be part of the boom and did my master’s degree in computer applications. It was a career choice to be involved in the tech industry.

  • Q: What is something most people don't know about you?
    A: Most people don't know that I am a poet. My poems are published in many literary journals and anthologies worldwide. My poetry book “Pearls of A Strawberry Moon” is available in Amazon. I have won international poetry competitions as well.
