This journey has taught me to embrace change.

I got married in 2019, & with the excitement of starting a new chapter in my life, I moved to the US. It was a chance for me to reset my life & explore all the other possibilities that I had been interested in. Back in India, I had a background in statistics and was working as a Data Scientist, but now in the US, I considered myself lucky to be on an L2 visa that allowed me to work right from the beginning.

One of the things I had always enjoyed doing was blogging, & I saw this opportunity as a perfect chance to continue my passion in Austin. At first, I had no network here, but that didn’t stop me. I started from scratch, building my network, and focusing on a unique niche: cocktail recipes. As I began creating content & sharing my passion for mixology, I noticed that brands were interested in collaborating with me to develop content & recipes for them. This was an exciting chance to pursue my dream of becoming a mixologist, & I decided to embrace this unconventional career path.

Determined to enhance my skills, I enrolled in a bartending school in New York. It was an intense experience, but I returned to Austin more confident and ready to take on new challenges. I started participating in local events, curating bars, & crafting customized drinks. To my delight, I decided to infuse Indian flavors into my cocktails, which turned out to be a hit among everyone. I felt proud to represent our culture in the mixology industry in the US.

Over the last 3 years, there has been no looking back. My blogging career served as my primary source of income, allowing me the freedom to continue pursuing mixology with full dedication. I continued to blog while constantly working on refining my mixology skills. And now, I am on the verge of realizing another dream: launching my own bar.

Through hard work, passion, & a little bit of risk-taking, I’ve been able to create a life that truly excites and fulfills me. I am grateful for the opportunities that moving to the USA has offered me & the chance to explore my interests fully. This journey has taught me to embrace change, take chances, & follow my heart. I look forward to the adventures that lie ahead as I continue to grow my mixology career and make my mark in the world of cocktails.
