Unmasking 10 to 1 Employees: Sharda Veeramally
Sharda Veeramally, Senior Account Executive –
I have been in Public Relation for over a decade and I can bet that most of my family members and friends still don’t know what is it that I do. Do I make ads or write articles for newspapers that don’t really have my name on them? My fellow PR pros can relate to this feeling. Right?! #faceplam. Nevertheless, I’ve had a great start to my career in India before moving to the United States five years ago. It definitely was a tough transition initially, but thanks to my amazing coworkers and clients for making it a smooth ride. It’s been a fulfilling journey, to say the least, and I am just getting started!
- If you didn’t work in PR, what would you do?
Maybe a professional dancer or a theater artist – still telling stories, just like I do in PR!
- When you’re not at work …
You’ll find me running around with my 2-year-old or in the kitchen experimenting with a new recipe.
- Best advice you’ve ever been given?
The best advice I ever received was from my parents to “always trust your unique path and keep putting in the hard work. Everything will fall in place.”
- What’s your favorite quote?
“Stay hungry, stay foolish” – Steve Jobs
- If you had a superpower, what would it be and why?
Maybe the power to change things instantly at the blink of an eye, like in the show “I dream of Jeannie.” I would use it every day to spruce up the house after my toddler destroys it!
