She is also a part of the Institute Innovation Council where she organises events to create awareness about Innovation, creativity and collaborative thinking to all the young minds on campus.

She is an ardent reader. She enjoys reading fiction, magical realism, crime and thriller. Arctic Monkeys is hands down her favourite band. She has always been creative and very articulate about her thoughts. She considers formulating her thoughts as one of her strongest points which is why she maintains a blog where she writes about human emotions since they speak volumes to her. She is a proud Published Co-Author of the Anthology called INARA. She goes by the pen name 'Reeth Rajas', Rajas being her late father's name. In this way, she hopes to keep his memory alive.
She lives by this quote, “People want to be bowled over by something special. Nine times out of ten you can forget, but that tenth time, that peak experience, is what people want. That's what can move the world. That's art.” - Haruki Murakami, South of the Border, West of the Sun.
