Taking Risks & Responsibility - I started my career as a developer with opportunities coming my way from being a manual QA to leading QA teams to launching products to writing blogs to being a Scrum master and being recognised by BrowserStack, Lambdatest, Selenium Community....and latest being a Cypress Ambassador. There is much more to learn & achieve.
