Be the change you wish to see in the world” – Mahatma Gandhi


This quote resonates with me because I believe that positive change starts with individual actions. By disrupting existing systems and challenging the status quo, we can create a better future for ourselves and for others. It takes courage and determination to challenge the norms and push for change, but the end result can be transformative and impactful. So, let’s not be afraid to disrupt systems and strive for a better tomorrow

Overcoming challenges repeating a grade. One of my childhood memories is overcoming challenges. I had low self-esteem, which affected my school years and grades. I gained confidence after I realised that you can become a better person. Failure is not the end of the world, but actually a motivation to do better. I am now proficient in facilitating and moderating in large corporate settings.

Follow your passion and do what makes you happy
