👋 Hi, I'm so grateful for you to be here!
👋 Hi, I'm so grateful for you to be here!

Apart from my regular job, I'm actively create online content where I share my personal experiences from my college days and offer valuable tips for today's college students. This is in the process of building up my online reputation, and indeed my Portfolio!

One of my core passions lies in engaging with enthusiastic students. We're building a community for college students known as the Think Digital Students Community. The aim is to help students build their Portfolio and their Network, which are the two major aspects of any college student.

I commit myself to driving initiatives like “NoAgendaCoffee” Meetups and “The Student Sorcerer” Newsletter, through which I build micro-communities of people ranging from 1st year college students, to experienced working professionals.

Encouraging self-governance among young people, I believe in values like delayed gratification, self-authorship, and active listening, envisioning a world filled with consciously self-governing individuals!
