  • What bothers you most about what is happening in the country today?
  • I am most bothered about the corruption issue which has its roots deep in the economy of our country. But what irks me the most is the stand of the people in our country who knowingly or unknowingly become a part of this vicious circle and never take a stand to eradicate it from our society completely. It is thus important that we keep our eyes and ears open and fight against the injustice, know our rights and work together to make our nation corruption free.

I also look forward to teach the poor children who don’t have enough resources to go to schools for I believe, education is the only way to empower our future generations.
