Who is the most influential person in your life?
My grandmother. She is a perfect example of a strong and independent woman. It takes a lot of courage and strength to raise a child without any support. She got married when she was 16, but unfortunately, she lost her husband and wasn’t qualified to get a job. However, she didn’t lose hope in life and gave birth to her child. She completed her board exams and enrolled herself in a nursing course while taking care of her son. I feel so proud and inspired by her story. It gives me strength to work hard in life and to be patient at all times. I want to make her proud and give her all the love and happiness.

Something I read which I believe in and would like to share with the world- Do not let your ideas and talent go waste due to lack of confidence. Someone not as talented as you will surpass you simply because they believe in themselves. Take risks and trust your gut feeling. Be crazy enough to think you can change the world. Also, to grow as a person, it is very important to be empathetic and compassionate.
