About Heera and job interest

I've been described as a coconut - referring to the fact that I grew up in the UK even though I'm originally from Kerala. I graduated from Kerala University while working full time with Allianz Insurance. Allianz has taught me a lot about corporate life, but a lot more about Indian festivals and desserts. I'm currently a student at Anglia Ruskin University pursuing my masters in International Business. Outside of work, I spend my time nurturing my cacti collections who tirelessly listen as I practice my university presentations. I'll be willing to relocate to West London if I've been given the chance.
