Miki’s first foray into the business world was as a co-founder of THINX, a company that makes period-proof underwear. The idea for the company came to her when she was living in India and saw how women were treated during their periods. She was appalled by the lack of sanitation and hygiene products available to women, and she was determined to do something about it. When she returned to the States, she teamed up with her sister and a friend to create THINX. The company has been extremely successful, and it has earned Miki a spot on Forbes’ “30 Under 30” list.

Miki was born in Canada to Indian immigrants. When she was growing up, her parents instilled in her a strong work ethic and a desire to help others. These values have stayed with her throughout her career, and they’ve driven her to create companies that make a difference in the world. Miki is a strong advocate for feminism, and she believes that every woman should have the opportunity.
