So, yeah, I genuinely feel a little out of place here.
But yes, I think five years, one month and five days is what took me to come to this side, standing here from there where I was a couple of years back as an engineering student.
Well, I can only say I can stand as an example for the fact that in India, we only become engineers first to figure out later, what we really want to become.
So, yes, I am an engineer, software engineer if you ask me.
Yeah. Woo. Software, software. Yes.
Well, if you ask me, why did I do engineering?
Well, no matter how weird it sounds from a girl's mouth, I loved mathematics.
Yes. And I kind of managed to score like those 96, 97 marks in 12th Board thinking, yes, I have to be an engineer.
This is it. This is the only thing I should be doing.
Well, I entered engineering.
It was quite a task because I missed out from quite a few ranks and numbers to be able to make it to the most prestigious institutions, BITS also didn't really take me.
But then, no loss, no gain.
I'm still standing here.
So, yes. I mean, as I told you, we all become engineers first and then decide what we have to do. Right.
So, yeah. So, that's my journey.
When I started off, yes, I became an engineer.
But during those four years, a lot changed.
My first year, I was trying to figure out is this really where I see myself after four years, sitting and coding.
Like, with all due respect to people who do it, my best friends do it as well.
But I couldn't really see myself doing it within the first year.
Second year onward, my attendance went down.
I started doing other stuff, like made my own only female dancing group of my college, where, you know, in engineering, girls is like a scarcity.
So, you have like 10 girls dancing team, from an engineering institution was itself a huge achievement.
That is one of my, like the biggest achievements.
Trust me, the kind of things I suffered making those girls stand together as a group and then making them win all the possible competitions of that year.
Well, I like to boast about myself, I'm an actor.
So, yes. So, from there, it started.
The second year, yeah, it was a little difficult for me to digest that this is not what I really want to do, but I'm already in it.
So, now what do I do?
I have to get through it.
I didn't want to leave things in between because that's not how I handle my life.
So, I went ahead, completed my second year.
Third year someone said, Oh, you kind of look nice.
Why don't you try modelling?
And I was like, okay, so what do I do next?
Yeah. Thank you for that support. Thank you.
I believe I look nice.
