So far, she's worked for four different domains, namely, recruitment, research analysis, software testing, and business development. However, her urge to become an entrepreneur has made her resign from these jobs and she is now working towards her dream to build her own startup.

Here's our chat with Rumesha -

Q. Hi, Rumesha. What do you currently do?

Rumesha: I'm currently taking a break from "my chase for IT life" and working on the other things that I love i.e., Arts, Crafts, and writing. And yeah! I'm planning for a startup of the same and will go for it soon.

Q. Where and when did you first hear about CE and what prompted you to join the community?

Rumesha: I received an internship email from CE and I usually get excited about internships. I then submitted my application immediately and was tickled pink when I got shortlisted and then got to know there's so much more about the community. I express my gratitude to Team CrazyEngineers.

Q. What are you truly passionate about?

Rumesha: I'm on my way to find my true passion as I'm dedicating time for everything I can do. Hoping to find one soon!

Q. What is the ultimate dream of your life?

Rumesha:  I want the world to know my name and thinking about me should leave a smile on their face. I want to be someone's inspiration.

Q. What do you consider as the biggest mistake you made in your life and what did you learn from it?

Rumesha: My biggest mistake was hating myself for the mistakes I committed and for the labels the world gave me. I pushed myself into depression for so many years. It took a lot of time for me to realize that mistakes are a part of life and they help us grow. I now smile no matter what and love myself.

Q. What does success mean to you?

Rumesha:  Every little to huge thing that I accomplish is a success. I appreciate and reward myself for it.

Q. What do you like the most about CrazyEngineers platform and what is one thing you would change about it?

Rumesha: I love the way CEans help each other, the way the community keeps encouraging and motivating everyone equally. I also love the way that you guys often keep coming up with new ideas to maintain that zeal in the community. There's nothing I would like to change.

Quick, 5 Rapid Fire Questions: 

Q. If your life was a movie, what would its title be?

Rumesha: I would name it Smiles, Money and Me. The order is a variable.

Q. Name three things that you cannot live without.

Rumesha: Dreams, Smile and Food.

Q. What is your biggest fear in life?

Rumesha: Not being able to utilize my life to the fullest. Although I will not let that happen.

Q. If you could be any superhero who would you be and why?

Rumesha: I would be the combinational female version of Iron Man and Thor because I think it's cool to fly in a suit, grab the hammer and save people. 

Q. Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?

Rumesha: Packing my bags for the world tour.

Very interesting interview, Rumesha. Wishing you all the best for your startup plan. Keep us posted about your progress. 

What exactly is your startup about? 

As a fellow aspiring entrepreneur, I congratulate you on choosing the path of entrepreneurship. How difficult was it for you to resign from your current job?

Thank you @Kaustubh Katdare for your support and encouragement. The niche of my startup i have decided for now is not that big coz I'm just starting. I'm now planning to make scrapbooks, handmade customised gifts, soap and candle making and few others...planning to expand my niche as i climb the ladder. Another thing to share is that i have already partnered with an event management business with my friends which is now setup in bangalore like 15 days ago. Thought i would try that that part too. It would be great if you could help us get a client?. Thank you once again!

Thank you @Mohit patil for the greetings! For me leaving a job without a penny in my hand was really tough...i guess you can imagine. I had to leave Bangalore and go to my hometown as my pockets ran totally empty. I gave myself some time to make a plan of what im gonna do and where im gonna focus. I did all my research too and have a clear idea what I'm gonna face on my path to my dream. I'm now back to Bangalore with a clarity in my head and landed another job now to meet my expenses. Gonna implement my arts and crafts idea in a few weeks?. Thanks again!

That is the drawback of living in a city like Bangalore. It's worse when you have to pay EMIs to bank. I am stuck with that problem and wonder what will I do if my startup does not make money within 1 year. Also, an year seems too small a period for my idea to take off. 

All the best!
