Syama Harini is a Project Executive in Evam trying new content in open mics while studying the same old syllabus in Economics in Stella Maris. She is well on her way to master both :)
I always chose chocolates over calories and Batman over Barbie.
I chose playing games in my play station over hours of window shopping unlike many of my friends.
I am one of the very few who chose a degree in economics over management
Yes, I am pursuing my masters in economics (no, I haven’t mastered it yet. Don’t even know the definition of economics yet)
Yes I am a girl and I don’t like kids and I don’t go ‘Awwww’ over them at any point of time
I chose to quit college in Bangalore to stay with my mom and my city.
I chose drama (theatre) over corporate life
And yes I chose to stay with Evam and discover more theatre and arts over money
I have always been a fan of theatre because I believe it helps in dealing with real life drama better!
I have acted in a few plays in school and college.
But Evam showed me what professional theatre was and what it takes to actually put up a kickass production
I chose Evam to be my first employer which obviously gave me my first salary
And Evam made me meet my true love which is stand-up. I still commit to it as much as I can and share a very intimate relationship with it.
Evam Standup Tamasha has inspired me to write scripts for stand-ups and do open mics every week.
It has also inspired me to do stand-up in my college farewell and win competitions for my college in culturals
I chose to have a career where people can laugh at me (literally) and I can also get paid for it because you need money too!
