Q.2 Where do you get inspiration from?
I find my inspiration in my aunt, my Bua. She has always inspired me to do something in life, to achieve something. Be it education, career, or the life she has always guided me, supported me, and motivated me. She gave me the confidence to choose the field of writing, even though my family was not in my support as they wished I would be a doctor. So, today whatever I am, it’s because of her.
Q.3 Do you find managing your studies and writing at the same time difficult?
Yes, I do find managing studies and writing at the same time difficult and giving it the same productivity but I have improved a lot from past years and I am still improving. I try to make a balance between both. There were times I felt like quitting and unmotivated but I recall why I even started doing it and then I am back in my full form.
Q.4 If you won’t be a content writer, what else would you do?
If I weren’t a content writer, I would surely be a Radio Jockey. I am a creative person and love communicating a lot. I also have a humorous side that I want to explore and show to the world. Humour and communication is my cup of tea and it’s creativity that attaches me to both fields.
Q.5 What has been one of the biggest challenges you have faced in the field of content writing?
When I started writing I had no guidance, no support system. I faced a lot of rejections because I did not have any background in writing and I didn’t have any knowledge of the industrial area. I had to figure out a lot of things on my own, I didn’t even know someone who could help me. There were paid courses but I wasn’t able to afford them initially. So, these were the challenges and still, there are many challenges I face.
Q.6 What is one of your best moments after entering into this field of content writing?
One of the best moments I can recall is the time when I worked with an event management company and they loved my work. They even provided me with my visiting card, though it was a small achievement still it is one of the best moments. When my work was recognized and appreciated it was like I was on the seven clouds.
