Meet Zara Sheikha, The First Indian Transgender To Land An HR Job In An MNC!

Setting her own trajectory!


Born as Nishant, Zara Sheikha, 27, has chalked out her own path. A transgender from Kerala, Zara has suffered a lot, for something that she was not responsible. She stood for herself, without giving a damn to the world. She gained acclamation after she landed a job in the Human Resources Department of UST Global, Technopark, Trivandrum in Kerala. 

She has shared her journey in her own words. It is shared on the Facebook page, Being You. The page celebrates real life heroes, who have had the guts to follow their hearts and make a place for themselves in this overly crowded world! 

Zara is an epitome of self-confidence, something that was her weakness when she was a kid. From being mocked at for her effeminate mannerisms in college, to being treated as an outcast, Zara has not let that dim her spirits. Instead, she marked them as her stepping stones. Today, she has learnt it all and is proud of her identity.

UST Global is a multinational provider of Digital, IT services and solutions, headquartered in Aliso Viejo, California, United States.
