Unplugged by TEDxGateway speaker, Vishakha Sodha, grew up to have an unusual avocation of collecting degrees. From graduating in English Literature to Fashion Designing from National Institute of Fashion Design (NIFT), Journalism and Media studies followed with an MBA in Operations. She strongly believes learning is not something that only depends on what career option you pick, but also on your personal interests.
Being exceptionally well at academics at NIFT she got a chance to work at Lakme Fashion Week and instantly got picked up by fashion designer Jatin Varma as his General Manager at just the age of 19 and then there was no stopping . She ventured into multiple professions simultaneously. She then resigned her full time job and began freelancing in influencer marketing along with the her other professions.
The Fairytale Reality
My Journey started as child artist. I was spotted on TV commercials like, McDonald’s, Santro Zip drive etc. I got back to fame post graduation with a negative role in Dil Dosti Dance 3. With business in my blood and love for the camera I pursued being a content creator and an entrepreneur at the same time.
From wanting to drop out college to ending up having an avocation of learning. Graduated in English Literature, studied Fashion Designing, Journalism and Media studies and followed it with an MBA. I got a chance to work at Lakme Fashion Week and instantly got picked up by ace fashion designer, Jatin Varma as his General Manager at just the age of 19 and then there was no stopping.
After 4 years of being a corporate slave, I resigned and began freelancing as a marketing professional along with other gigs. I was honoured to speak at Tedx where I rephrased the term ‘Jack of all master of none’ to ‘Jack can now master all trades’
I ventured into digital marketing as a freelancer and helped several brands to reach out to the audience. Being a passionate traveller, I started creating content for brands within the travel and fashion industry! I have maintained my content to be quirky, graceful and fun, just like my personality.
As of today, Vishakha Sodha is a registered marketing and IT company in Canada, and I continue to be a content creator, Voice over artist, Podcast host and a Live stream VJ
