A FIRST GENERATION AMERICAN
Mona Das was born to Indian parents who immigrated to America when she was 8 months old with $6 in their pocket, and an unfailing desire to build a better life for their family.
Her father worked tirelessly to become a noted materials science engineer. As in many Indian families, her mother was the foundation of the Das family and over the years taught many fellow immigrants how to get by in America. Both of Mona’s parents imbued her with courage, determination, and a strong work ethic.
In the Das family, education was a top priority, and therefore Mona attended the University of Cincinnati where she earned a BA in Psychology helping her to excel in early roles within the tech industry, both internationally and domestically.
