Meet K G Priya….
What is one woman that has inspired you in your life?
There are lot of women who inspire me, and it is hard to pick just one, Sheryl Sandberg, Jacinda Ardern and Marie Curie (the first woman to have won Nobel Prize) are some of them. Having said this, I have been very fortunate throughout my formative years and still today to be surrounded by inspiring women.
What has been your favorite project so far at Uniphore?
I always believe in giving 100% in whatever I do and you will be able to do that only when you love your work and are passionate about what you do. So, it’s natural for me to say every project that I have handled here is a favorite project for me and I thoroughly enjoy being part of this wonderful journey Uniphore is going through.
Can you share a passion project that you have outside of work?
I started no differently than any other girl, with perhaps one major exception: I was always told by family, friends, and mentors that I could achieve anything I wanted as long as I was open, worked hard and remained helpful to others. My gender was never part of the discussion, but it seems my experience was rare. This was the reason in the recent times, for me to start mentoring a lot of young girls passing out of universities as it became clear that we need to do more to shine a light on the ambitious, successful women who dream big and achieve their personal and professional goals while staying true to themselves. Men seem to have these kinds of role models in abundance and perhaps as a result do not struggle to imagine that they can affect change and become leaders. But many girls and young women struggle to find similarly successful, relatable role models who can inspire them to imagine everything they could achieve and believe that each of those possibilities could become a reality.
And now onto our rapid-fire section of our interview.
What is your morning routine?
I am an early riser and I don’t need an alarm to wake up. And waking up naturally is, for me, a great way to start the day. A big part of my morning routine is about what I don’t do: when I wake up, I don’t start the day by looking at my phone. Instead, once I’m awake, I take a minute to breathe deeply, be grateful, and set my intention for the day. Then I get into getting my kids ready for school.
If you could call into a contact center for your favorite brand and have voice powering it who would it be? Dead or alive.
