Vishakha received her training in Broadcast Journalism at NDTV Ltd., a national media organization in India. Following her training, she interned in all departments within NDTV 24*7, the English news channel of NDTV Ltd. She developed a keen interest in production and politics there. Her experience there, as well as working as a producer and editor for Emerson College Polling Society, has helped her refine her skills as a videographer.
