“Growing up, I witnessed my father’s passion for the real estate business which inspired me to choose the same sector. According to me, my biggest achievement as a woman leader is to find happiness and thrill in my creative efforts towards continual growth. In regards to male domination that exists across industries however, that holds true only in terms of numbers but not in intellect and hence their domination is inconsequential. A woman’s inherent qualities are enough, no special qualities are necessary irrespective of which field she chooses to work in. Having said that, I joined Spenta Corporation as Director and throughout the journey, my father and my brother have been the biggest support and critics, who in times of adversity always rally around me.” shared Anaisha Cooper, Director at Spenta Corporation.
