Surbhi Gupta, an engineer from India, was among the thousands of employees sacked by Facebook's parent company Meta.

Her life had been looking up. She was doing well at work and even forayed into the television and beauty pageants arena. She appeared on the popular  Netflix show Indian Matchmaking, hosted by Mumbai-based matchmaker Sima Taparia, who travelled between India and the US to play cupid for successful millennials.

In 2018, Gupta won the Miss Bharat-California pageant, and was crowned by none other than her idol Sushmita Sen.

She worked for 15 years, pursuing her American dream, but now faces uncertainty.
