In this episode, Divya shares about her interest in Biology right from when she was young and the factors that influenced her in choosing  her current area of interest, namely, Animal Behaviour.

 We hear about the role of her mother in not putting pressure on her career choice and how she helped her in finalizing her course of preference and insisted she live in a hostel. Also,  how Divya used the opportunities around her to shape her career and even now, in how she spends her free time.

Please do not miss a message that she has, towards the end of this episode.

The quality of audio in this episode is not that great, considering the extent of editing required to mask the sound of a carpenter who chose to work next door after we started recording the episode!! Sorry about that..
