I am currently working in the sales organization at Wipro, a technology products and managed services company. My role involves marketing and sales strategy management (as a part of the company's MBA Leadership Development Program). I worked 3 years in public policy and communication working for Raul Grijalva in Washington, DC, and 2 years at the University of Iowa, earning my MBA in 2015. Without a doubt, my degree in History contributed to my success in nonprofit and government, and now in business. My experience as a student in history improved my ability to write, to research, to build and express an argument, to understand different points of view and the motivations of the proponents behind them. These are essential skills even in a highly technical company like Wipro.
