From a career that spans over a decade, the woman has collected experiences from her engineering days to her stint at Femina.
Youngest Mompreneur Harshita Dagha is focused on providing customized content solutions from e-commerce platforms to independent publications, from offering relationship advice to covering celeb news. If it has to do with words, she will find a solution for you. She will do it for you if you need content that pulls people in like a moth to light. She is accredited as one of the top freelance writers in India today with an unapologetic passion for content.
A Different Career Than Expected
What does one do after finishing their engineering degree? Probably a specialised degree or a masters in the same field. But Harshita didn’t want that. After finishing her Electronics & Telecommunication course from KJ Somaiya College of Engineering, Mumbai University, Dagha ventured into content with her first stint at Thatscoop Media.
From Thatscoop Media, Youngest Mompreneur Harshita would eventually venture into a feature writer career at Femina. But this wasn’t the end of the road for her.
The Youngest Mompreneur of Today
She would take off after Femina and launch herself into the freelance space. And the world became her creative oyster as she was finally able to fully flex her passion and skills. As a new mother, the freelance lifestyle is what helped her create the perfect work-life balance. And it shows in her impressive resume.
Post-motherhood, her associations and contributions as an author can be found in her work with Time of India, Hindustan Times, Daily Hunt, Yahoo, Ed Times, Mid-day, HZ international magazine, DatingXP and so on. She has also worked as a content consultant for entities such as Zee, Issey Miyake, Planet Marathi, OML, Vistas Media Capital, Diquery Digital LLP, etc. Her post mom-hood interviews include notable celebs like Dia Mirza, Pratik Gandhi (Harshad Mehta, Scam 1992), Kaneez Surka and important businessmen like Akshay Bardapurkar and Abhayanand Singh among others.
All her hard work has paid off as she was recognised by Indian Food Express as India’s Top 10 writers in 2020 and Digital Indian awarded her Article of the Year in 2019.
An Expert Juggler
“Sure, juggling between the two worlds is quite a task but efficiency, passion and the drive is all it takes to stick around,” she explains.
The 29-year-old entrepreneur and independent journalist is a mother to a 1.5-year-old. She both re-started and accelerated her content journey after delivering her baby, and she is now at gear 5 and totally unstoppable.
