5-Minute-Interview: I regret getting married early, putting my dreams on hold


I’m good at…….interacting with people and making new friends.

I’m very bad at……keeping relationships.

The last book I enjoyed reading is…..I am not Rejected by Father Francis. 

A common misconception about me……I am a high achiever. I feel I still have a long way to go to get to where I want to be.

My worst childhood fears were……the dark and heights. Although I have managed to overcome my fear of the dark, I am yet to overcome my fear of heights.

My ideal night out is……getting on a bus or a car and travelling to a new place.

In another life I would have been…..a nurse. I am good at nurturing sick people.

If I was a politician, I would……improve the conditions of citizens who live in slums. I would ensure the cost of living is affordable so they are able to provide their families with basic needs. I would also ensure that education is available to children from all backgrounds.

The best age to be is…30 to 40. One is mature enough to make decisions responsibly.

The best part of my job is….it is stress-free and I am self sufficient. I can work from anywhere

My greatest regret is…..getting married at an early age. I had to focus on my family and put my dreams on hold.

Historical figure I most identify with…… one in particular.

Living people I most admire……my mother and my younger sister. They never lose hope no matter how challenging a situation is. They are go-getters who always look at situations with a lot of positivity. They inspire me and I look to them when I need someone to talk to.

My greatest possession is….my two beautiful daughters. 

If I was to die in five minutes, my last words would be……….In life we live with a lot of Judases. There are betrayers all over.
