The story of a maker in the making.
My name is Agniva
I am an Engineer turned Designer currently working at a cab technology company known as Olacabs. While I was completing my under-graduation from IIT Roorkee, I started venturing the field of Product Designing and finally decided to shift my career path. Right from my childhood, I have loved wearing multiple hats and have kept myself engaged in activities that involved a productive use of my creative enzymes. I believe that —
“Irrespective of your will there is always a way. If you cannot figure it out, somebody else will.”
