A shy person growing up, Huzefa embraced his outgoing and humorous self when he started college. He flexed his funny bone through impromptu stand-up performances within his close-knit groups and realized the joy of making others laugh. This journey from shyness to self-expression marked a significant personal transformation and helped him learn how to strike a balance between social interactions and moments of introspection. Adding to this, his passion for working with people set the stage for a fulfilling career in human resources, with his first role out of college being an advisor for business processing outsourcing at WNS Global services right out of college.
As Huzefa progressed in his career, he appreciated the immense value of relationships and networking in the workplace. He believes that building strong connections with colleagues, mentors, and industry peers not only offers support and guidance, but also opens doors to new opportunities. Huzefa firmly lives by the adage, “‘network is net worth” and shares that he has come to embrace failures as steppingstones to success.
