In this talk, Vidya shares her experiences and challenges as a solo traveler and the importance of enjoying your own company.

Vidya has donned many hats through her academic, personal and work life – Analyst, engineer, chef, activist, entrepreneur, nomad, bubble tea aficionado, organiser and cat mom. She is a creative imagination of possibilities. Be it in her travels, or in her life as a single-by-choice feminist navigating life in a society and world that has been built for conformists, she thinks openness and an unshackling of one’s inner self is what will take our generation forward. Currently Vidya runs two ventures, The Bumble Bee studio and The Big Straw.
