Introduction for team 7

Hi guys,

I am Ritika Jain, Project Manager Lead for team 7.

@ridhi.shah @jenndy @Akanksha_Singh @Aalap_Parimalkumar_R @Neda_Sal @Abhishek_Prasad @Frances @kasim23 @keerthikamath

Let’s get to know each other with basic introductions. I’m really excited to work and collaborate with you all and learn one thing new from each of you.
