Early life

Saksena was born in Kanpur in the state of Uttar Pradesh in India. In 1959, at the age of 7, Saksena moved to Kuwait, where her father worked from 1959 until 1981. In 1981, Saksena went back to India and finished school at St Mary's Convent Kanpur.

After graduating from university, Saksena got married and had two children and lived in Kuwait and Bahrain for several years before moving to Dubai, UAE.

In addition to giving seminars and workshops, Saksena also speaks at conferences, counsels people and writes for different TV publications and radios shows that focus on financial independence, especially for women.


She serves as permanent trustee of the Manzil Center for Individuals with Special Needs in Sharjah.
