We asked Neha to take a few minutes to let us know what’s on her mind and how she’s spending her time these days (besides navigating a pandemic).
Hey there, Neha! Thanks for your time. Let’s start off with the fun stuff:
Q: What’s your favorite stress-relieving activity outside of the office, and why?
A: I love exercising—mainly swimming, pilates, yoga. Helps to sweat out the stress! I’ve also been trying to get outside and walk with friends when weather allows, for safe socially-distant socializing.
Q: What book are you currently (or most recently) reading?
Q: What would your perfect meal entail?
A: TACOS on top of TACOs enveloped in more TACOS. Mezunte and Tacos Locos are staples of any proper diet.
Q: What is your favorite Netflix or Hulu show?
A: COBRA KAI, hands down 😊
Q: If you could drink one drink other than water for the rest of your life, what would it be?
A: I’m really into this Mango Bubbly stuff right now! I guess it still counts as water but so refreshing.
Q: What did you want to be when you grew up as a child?
A: A supreme court justice. If I had to daydream all over again, I’d want to be a famous acoustic guitarist.
Q: Did you play any sports in high school or college?
A: Yes, I’m a tennis nerd. I love playing tennis and watching tennis. I played varsity tennis in high school. Mainly singles because I’m a ball hog.
Q: What was the first concert you ever went to?
A: Third Eye Blind & Incubus. It was spectacular 😊
