Shamna was introduced to the concept of space and its utility during her graduation courses. Post-graduation expanded that scope to a macro level offering the ability to look at challenges at an urban scale. Service level improvement of public utility is a sector that she has worked on consistently during her academic course and continued after her post-graduation studies.
