Yasmin Srikanth migrated to London from India when she was 18 years old and then to UAE before finally reaching the shores of Australia. “Life here can be so luxurious; we enjoy a perfect winter and an amazing spring. Summer brings a great festive season and Christmas a whole new feel,” says Yasmin, who adds there is nothing in the world that would make her give up living here. Still, she says, there are days her Anglo Indian roots show especially when she craves for a pepper water and rice.
From securing work in the production line of a company to becoming a factory manager in a competitive food manufacturing company to a challenging position at Wyn Blinds as Manager-Operations, Yasmin has come a long way. Wyn Blinds, says Yasmin, is all about blinds, awnings, shutters, and security doors for those planning on renovation or re-decorating their homes. “The company is a supplier to most builders for new homes in Melbourne that use our products. So work is hectic and challenging but great,” she says.
Melbourne, which makes her feel spoilt for choice whether it comes to food or lifestyle, has thrown challenges at her, but countered every challenge with an opportunity. “That’s what so great about this city.”
