Luxy joins Ara on this episode of #TheTamilCreator to discuss female representation in the corporate world, three tricks Luxy uses to overcome challenges, her newfound appreciation for enjoying the moment - and so much more.

"The Tamil Creator" is a podcast started by me (Ara Ehamparam). As someone who is extremely inquisitive by nature, I created the podcast to chat with, spotlight, and learn about brilliance among creators in the Tamil community - and among creators in general from all over the world.
