What happened: In a LinkedIn post shared by Maniha Hashmi, it quoted, “As a 19-year-old kid on an exchange semester who happened to pass by Columbia on her trip to New York City, I made a promise to myself that I will come back to study here one day.” Maniha Hashmi, via LinkedIn, noted that she is pursuing an MS degree in Management (Sports). 

The journey: Hashmi, in her LinkedIn post, stated, “I started my journey at Amazon as a Transportation Manager. Wide-eyed and keen to learn about this gigantic engine of world-class Technology and Operations, I had absolutely zero ideas that life would have other plans for me.” 

The aim: Maniha Hashmi noted, “Here is to hoping I can create more opportunities for girls like me back at home. Onwards and upwards.”
