What 3 words sum you up?


What is an interesting fact about you that not many know?

I have hosted television shows in India when I was younger.

Most embarrassing moment:

I once asked the barista at Starbucks if she needed to see my ID when she asked for my name to write on my cup. After a long and tedious day of orientation events at GMU, I was so accustomed to showing people my ID for the day that it had temporarily become a habit. I realized the blunder I made when she stared at me like I were from outer space. It is safe to say that I played it off very well with my nervous laugh.

Biggest inspiration:

My mother.

Worst nightmare:

Not being proud of myself.

If you knew today was your last day on Earth, how would you spend it?

I would spend it like any other day by surrounding myself with the people and things that mattered most to me in my life.

Best piece of advice you’ve ever gotten:

“It doesn’t matter if others acknowledge/praise you for your achievements. What matters is that you acknowledge yourself for your achievements.” – My High School English Teacher.

Where do you hope to see yourself in 10 years?

In ten years, I look forward to being successful in the marketing industry and being a home owner.
