TheCconnects: Can you tell our readers a little about your professional journey & how did you come to your current role/position?
Roshni Keshavan Iyer: It was all destined.
Communication & management is my core skill and that is what drove me to pursue my education and work with an agency. But with FARK, it was destiny that played its major role. 4 years back – Yash & I were college mates and he had casually mentioned starting his agency. And I clearly remember saying, “let’s experience the outer world and then join hands together”. And truly, it was just affirmatively put out. Cut to – December 2020, we bumped into each other when he was about to start his agency! That was where my journey with FARK began. From college mates to now business partners, it’s been a surreal experience. This journey wouldn’t have happened without his determination to achieve and break the normal cycle of the advertising world.
TheCconnects: Who has influenced you the most in life and why?
Roshni Keshavan Iyer: Rather than influence, support is what we need. I believe that without support our experience is incomplete. Throughout my journey my major support system has been my partner – Rahul as he gave me the confidence to restart my career after a break and also navigated me through all my decisions. I would also like to add Yash as his vision and the determination to make a difference in the world through creativity, was something that I was influenced by. P.S. Family & Friends (goes without saying)
TheCconnects: What are the biggest challenges you have faced in your life & how did you overcome them?
Roshni Keshavan Iyer: Challenges are fun. It amazes me on how differently and creatively we are able to overcome them. One of my major hiccup was relocating from Mumbai to Jaipur along with balancing and setting up my career with FARK. But like I mentioned earlier, it amazed me on how smoothly everything came together, just like a perfect puzzle.
