Archana Pereira: From Architecture to Sketch Artist:

Archana Pereira, an architecture student from Mysore, followed her passion for design to become an architect. However, her journey took an unexpected turn when she discovered her profound love for sketching during her studies in Scotland. Inspired by Bangalore's rich heritage, Archana embraced her passion for drawing and decided to pursue a career as a sketch artist. Today, she breathes life into architecture on paper, captivating audiences with her unique perspective. Archana's story teaches us the importance of following our hearts and finding joy in what one does.

Malavika Manay: Fashion Aspirant to Food Entrepreneur:

Malavika Manay, originally aspiring to pursue a career in fashion and styling, underwent a transformative journey. Dissatisfied with her work, she took a break and explored her passion for food and health.
