Instead of being overwhelmed by the uncertainty, Purva embraced it. "None of this was planned, and I love it already, so I've just surrendered myself to the universe. I am sure it will lead me to the right place!" she declared with unwavering faith.
As we delved deeper into her world, Purva's passion for her work became even more apparent. "Current Projects! Where do I start?
