She joins Ara on this week’s episode of #TheTamilCreator to discuss the kindest thing somebody did for her, balancing a full-time finance job with being a makeup artist as a side hustle, wanting to be an actress & what's stopping her today from pursuing it, how COVID taught her to slow down, why she's terrified of snakes, doing your research BEFORE you network, Ara reminding her of Jay Shetty (@jayshetty), and so much more.
