In this episode, I’m talking to Monica Becerril Ugalde, who is an ultra trail runner and Head of Marketing at Unived.in. She is a Mexican Immigrant who lived in the United States before moving to India. She is the wife of my friend Amit who has also been on the podcast.

Monica has done multiple ultra trail races ranging between 50 to 60km of distance. She has won the podium positions for many of these races. At the core, she is a conscious human being and a vegan.

In this episode, we talk about her story. Being a Mexican immigrant in the US and eventually moving to India. Now doing what she loves and building a vegan brand along with Amit with their great values. This was like a treat to hear her story.

So without further adieu, please enjoy this conversation with Monica Becerril Ugalde.
