Manisha was brought up in cities all over India and completed her Bachelor’s degree in Science from Meerut. She moved to the USA in the mid-nineties and was exposed to a completely different culture compared to the small town of India she was raised in. She was inspired to study further and completed her MBA from Georgia State University, Atlanta. During her MBA and her 9-year stay in Atlanta, she would compare the lives of women back home with the much better lives of American women. And two things that made all the difference were education and health. She started encouraging women to invest in their higher studies and also in their health. Health and fitness for women was a very strange idea back then.
