#MeetTheTeam: Nishta Daya (Designer)
Who is your biggest inspiration, or someone you look up to?
Out there in the world, it’s Elle Luna. She is an experimenter, maker, designer, thinker and life-advice-giver. I just think she’s a really cool woman who is very real about who she is and what she does. I find the experiences she shares to be quite inspiring for me. She doesn’t claim to know everything and celebrates the journey and process that one goes through in life and work.
In your opinion, what is your greatest asset?
I think for all of us, our minds are our greatest assets. Each is unique and that in itself is a crazy, amazing thing. I believe there is something to learn from everyone! I think I am also able to receive others’ views or suggestions in a good manner and I follow instructions well. I’m a list lady!
What’s your favourite thing to do when you’re not in the office?
I enjoy ocean-watching, hanging out with friends, practising yoga and spending time outside or at local hangouts.
How do you give back to your community?
I am currently doing some pro-bono work for an existing project that aims to positively reaffirm children through the use of educational material.
What’s your most prized gadget or creative tool?
My Mac of course! And my camera because I love taking photos.
If you could give your younger self some advice what would it be?
“Do not compare your journey to someone else’s end.”
