While others in Nina Godiwalla's Persian-Indian immigrant community were content to fulfill their parents' dreams, Nina's fierce ambition pulled to New York to become a banker. Showered with Broadway tickets and ferried around in sleek black town cars, Morgan Stanley recruits led a fast and flashy lifestyle. In a world where strip clubs took the place of conference rooms, Nina was driven to fit the mold of her fellow recruits: wealthy, white, and male.
