What's a day in the life of Shilpa Ahluwalia like? 

Trying to keep calm ... maintain inner peace - also looking like zen - while mind is racing at an unusual speed thinking of all that I can do and should be doing and body is multi tasking (eating, typing and speaking on the phone) in real time.

What's your greatest attribute?

Carly here. Shilpa is a wonderful listener and giver of advice. Her calmness really puts others at ease. Something that I could use more of in my daily life ;)

Food and Art.

I can get hangry; pretty often - food matters!

What's your signature style?

Black Kohled eyes and jeans. 

Funniest moment with me that you can remember?

When we went to that high energy Zumba class and then walked to Amy Ruth's, right after, for some soul food.


Life Motto:

There is freedom waiting for you

On the breezes of the sky

And you ask what if I fall

Oh but my darling

What if you fly
