Talking about her academic life, Prachi shares “My education at Ahmedabad University was a once-in-a-lifetime experience! The scholarship enabled me to fund my undergraduate studies without burdening my father. It provided me with the best education and was a win-win situation for my father and me.”
Her post-LLB plans include continuing her current job besides pitching in at A P Shah & Associates, a firm specialising in intellectual property rights founded by her husband and law course batchmate, Aagam Shah.
However, Prachi is not all work and no play. She has decided to revisit her hobbies of music, travelling and painting. “I am planning to take up the brush again as I have not been able to paint for the last few years due to my commitments,” she says. Plans are also on the anvil for growing the couple’s own travelling firm named Oneend Solutions..
With the proverbial Midas touch, this Ahmedabad Alumna certainly seems on her way to success.
