Astha Raina

The Fumble Bee
She calls herself a FumbleBee - as she is led by her curiosity to try out new things - She has fumbled into being a software engineer, account manager, COO for a bit, instructional designer - you get the gist. Her conflict always lays in trying to marry stability with a happy creative environment and so she ended up trying out different things at dizzying speeds(relative of course to the professional world). While fumbling she discovered her likes, her dislikes and most importantly a respect and grace towards her own 'fumbling'. These days, she spends most of her time studying some aspect of empathy and boundaries - realizing how both start within. And, with this she is trying to work out how to hold space for all kinds of people irrespective of their gender, age, preferences of all kinds etc. - a space to be, celebrate, mourn, and in general just bear witness to their lives - with kindness and curiosity.
