At Lumhaa (lʌm-hɑ, moment in Hindi), we dream about living in a world where everyone feels loved, understood, and welcome. Our award-winning research showed that writing and reading memories -- both your own and other peoples’ -- can make you feel happier, less lonely, more loved, better understood, and can also heighten your sense of purpose in life. That’s why we made you this app.

Shriya Sekhsaria is the founder and CEO of Lumhaa. When she was about four years old, her family was convinced that she would be kidnapped because of her habit to ask strangers about their life stories. Since then, she’s been dreaming about different versions of Lumhaa and hopes it will tackle the two problems she cares most about -- loneliness and a rising lack of empathy in the world. Outside of Lumhaa, Shriya is a nationally ranked archer, a best-selling novelist, and enjoys time on stage and on trading floors. She graduated from Princeton University (summa cum laude, phi beta kappa) with a degree in Psychology and certificates in entrepreneurship, european cultural studies, and finance.
