Biography:

An ardent foodie, overthinker and hopeless romantic, Praveena loves venturing out into the city and exploring all that life has to offer, be it for work or for leisure. Since sloths are her spirit animal, she also has an equal amount of passion, if not more, for sleep. When she isn\'t working, she will be spotted going on night drives, having deep conversations or reading Harry Potter for the hundredth time like it\'s the first.
