“No matter where you come from, you’re going to have these patches in your life that are going to be a struggle. But how do you overcome it? You do whatever it takes. Have that faith in yourself. That is the main lesson that EWI – and this country – has taught me.”
Born into a family of artists, Indian-born Sharmila started out drawing and painting and later studied graphics.

“I’ve always dabbled in many different things and this is, I can say confidently, one orginization that has utilized all my talents and put it to good use.”
