Sandhya Devanathan is the Country Director of Singapore for Facebook and a strong believer in the idea of diversity. Born in small-town India, Sandhya grew up with a passion in science and math, and chose to pursue a career in the field of engineering. As a student, she struggled with an absence of female voices in her field that she could relate to. Intimidated by the lack of gender diversity, Sandhya eventually chose to opt out of engineering and to pursue her studies in business management instead. However, through her current work at Facebook, she hopes to encourage more women to follow their passions in life and to boldly chase their dreams irregardless of the societal conventions imposed upon them. In doing so, she seeks to give voice to diverse groups of people all around the world.
