Dr Lita states that “my journey has been like a dream”. I am dreamer, I believe in hard, intelligent and smart working to meet my targets. I always imagined creating new innovations and each day I work towards it. I call myself a Meraki “someone who puts her heart, soul, creativity and a reflection of herself into her work”. I started my company not just for the purpose of earning money but at the same time to create impact to bring about a change through “innovation” which would benefit the society. Over three and half decades of life I have lived on this planet, every 10 years has taught me new things. I am still curious like a 10 year old, an active learner like an adolescent and mature like an adult. Each of these version of me help support my growth as an entrepreneur.
