Sowmya is a Software Engineer with Kloudspot. When she's not hard at work, she feels lucky to be at home during this time, being her mommy's little girl. Read more to find out what keeps her busy outside of work, and what new skills she's picked up.

What is the best part about working from home?
Having my loved ones nearby is definitely the best part.

What is your biggest challenge working from home?
Getting distracted by the love of my mom, who brings me something to eat every thirty minutes. I have to keep that in check to concentrate on my work.

What do you miss the most about going to office?
Chatting with colleagues, and I also miss the collaborative atmosphere of office a lot.

How do you unwind?
I usually go talk to my mom and spend time with her, which always calms my mind.


“Keep going. Everything you need will come to you at the perfect time.”

What do you do to stay fit?
I exercise twice a day, in the morning and evening.

Have you been learning any new skill or taking courses not related to your job?
I am into baking now. I am learning to make a variety of desserts.

Do you have any recommendations for TV shows/movies/books/games?
Vampire Diaries. It's awesome!

Which app(s) have you found the most useful during this period?
Swiggy, Sworkit, Health, Ludo, and of course MS Teams - I can't imagine how I would be able to work without it.

What would you say to someone who needs motivation during this lockdown period?
Just stay calm and carry on with your duties. Everything will be fine soon.

Do you see yourself changing post-pandemic? How?
I strongly believe that life is very short, and it is important to be kind to all. Another lesson I have learned is that I have to "Do it NOW" and not procrastinate when it comes to achieving my goals.

Any favorite quote?
It is one from my mom: "Keep going. Everything you need will come to you at the perfect time. :)"
