When one decides to follow their passion, everything else becomes secondary for them. They're focused on what they want to achieve and no hurdle is too big. Such is the story of Shriya Salunkhe. Shriya failed in many subjects in engineering and was clueless about what to do in life until she fell in love with UX.  The amount of work she had put in to learn about UX over the years eventually landed her a job.
