I just won the Young Business Woman Awards 2018 at the CNBC Young Turks Conclave and it feels pretty surreal. I grew up watching and being inspired by CNBC Young Turks – the entrepreneurs featured were the ones you looked up to.

The POPxo journey has been the most rewarding one to be on. As I sat in the audience, before the announcement, I thought back on how magnificently exciting and turbulent the past years have been. The lows matched with the brilliant highs. The key to dealing with both depends on having faith in the one certainty: Both the highs and lows are fleeting. The magic is the daily work. Over the past four years, I have internalized this. Now I simply take a moment to feel elated, or a moment to recoup and then move on.

The Young Business Woman Awards started as a campaign by CNBC in 2016 to recognize and felicitate Indian businesswomen who are pushing the boundaries of doing business across various sectors.

Cheers to all the #BossWomen and here’s to more empowering awards that recognize the work we do and the value we add. My sincere thanks to my amazing team. Entrepreneurship can be a lonely ride. It is only doable because of your colleagues. Their caring and passion become your rock.
