Shoumi Sen is the creator of “From The Toddler Diaries”, a series of children’s books on Indian culture and mythology.
‘From The Toddler Diaries’ began as a series of poems that Shoumi wrote for her daughter. This collection was the life of several bedtime story sessions and play dates with friends. Inspired by this interest among kids and encouraged by their parents, she decided to publish the collection.
Shoumi Sen is a Strategy, Sales and Marketing professional at a leading global energy management company. She studied engineering at BITS Pilani and The University of Maryland, College Park, and lives in Los Angeles with her husband and daughter. Her childhood in Paris, Bombay and Dubai provided her with opportunities to appreciate how Indians preserve a connection to their culture even while living abroad.
In Shoumi’s words, “Living outside India, it is sometimes challenging for parents to ensure that their children remain connected to their Indian roots, while at the same time, appreciating the culture of the place they are growing up in. Books can certainly help with that challenge and my hope is that the series ‘From The Toddler Diaries’ can play a part in helping our children grow into global citizens.”
When not working or writing, she is always looking for the next travel destination with her family!
