This episode is dedicated to the women who dream and to those who become!
Our guest for episode 3 of “How The Hell Did I Do It?” hosted by our Founder and CEO, Karishma Mehta , is THE #womaninbusiness Divya Gokulnath – Co-founder, BYJU’S !
Divya gets candid with us about that one class that changed her life and how at 21, she gave up going to her dream college abroad to become a teacher in India! A decision that led her to co– found BYJU’S and become one of India’s few self made billionaire women.
A leader, a mother, a wife, a daughter– the many roles of the woman behind the brand, this episode is going to leave you completely zapped at How The Hell Is She Doing It All?!

“How The Hell Did I Do It?” is a Humans of Bombay Original – a talk show where we speak with the dreamers, the pioneers, the go-getters and the never-say-no’ers from all walks of life. We discuss their journeys – the highs, the lows and everything in between. And through our candid conversations, we try to decode the human behind the name, and get pretty close to figuring out – How The Hell Did They Do It?

About Humans of Bombay

Humans of Bombay is a movement that started 8 years ago. We believe that every person has a story to tell and we want to help them tell these stories. In these years we’ve published stories across genres – stories of love, hope, faith and courage. And through our storytelling, we’ve built an engaged community of over 4.5M!
Our idea is simple – to strike a chord with our community and catalog the beat of humanity, one story at a time.
