I was told to look for a job just like all youngsters are advised, and I always had a sense of knowing that I am not meant to do a desk job. I do not mean to say it’s not a good thing, it wasn’t enough for me. From a young age of 18, through various initiatives that I took in college, I started enjoying leadership, training, and witnessing its impact on the masses, and that was the knowing I followed to have a venture of my own, even without much belief and support from family and friends who considering a job to be safer!
