Gratitude changes my perspective towards many things and brings happiness!

Your fashion sense

I would describe myself in two words – A Fashion Chameleon!  I dress and accessorise depending on my mood. I always have something edgy about my style. It’s one of my ways to push myself out of my comfort zone.

Your future plans?

Deep sea diving. I have an irrational fear of the ocean and I want to beat that!

What drives you?

The goal to reach my full potential.

Your life’s mantra?

Do your best and God will do the rest. It does sound very cliched but it works.
