Anu Muralidharan, a first-generation immigrant, arrived in the U.S. burdened with $120,000 in debt. Now, two decades later, she holds the esteemed positions of Chief Operating Officer and board member at Expensify (NASDAQ: EXFY), a leading expense management technology. Throughout her journey, it seemed Anu had it all together, achieving one goal after another. However, she struggled with self-worth, hitting her lowest point upon attaining the Vice President role at a prominent FinTech company she had relentlessly pursued. Gripped by depression, Anu reevaluated her notion of success, which led to a critical turning point in her life and career. While forging a new path, Anu developed three guiding principles to navigate uncertainties. Today, armed with those principles, she empowers young women to embrace their strengths, silence their inner critic, and know their value —a quest that binds, challenges, and liberates humanity.
