About Baishakhi Connor
When Baishakhi was 8, she wanted to be the President of the United States. Growing up in a tiny Indian town on a healthy dose of fiction, anything seemed possible. At 12, she realised a one-way flight to US cost many years of their household income! Presidency dreams were replaced by a search for ways to explore the world from near-poverty-line status.
From her tiny town start in life, Baishakhi has gone on to carve a diverse career spanning four continents. Now in her 40s, she continues to stretch her boundaries in ways she could never have imagined at 8. She has a senior management role in one of Australia’s largest retailers. She joined her first Board role last year. She volunteers. She mentors. She writes. She speaks. She makes time to learn new things, currently flexing her muscles into Powerlifting.
Baishakhi lives in a tri-cultural tri-religious family with her Australian Catholic husband and Afghan Muslim foster daughter. As foster mum of 1, step mum of 4 and step grand mum of 4 (and a ½), her life is a busy blur of family, fun and food.
