"From Me to We"
Being born with a congenital retinal disorder called Cone Dystrophy that restricts my eye sight to just 7% of normal vision, did not stop me from having a normal childhood. Thanks to my parents and siblings who treated me as a perfectly normal individual, it is through their backing that I found the belief and ability to lead a life like any other person.
Be it education or other extracurricular activities, I always found myself amongst conventionally abled peers learning to do things as all conventional folks do. This helped me blossom into an adult with a sense of completion, capability and confidence that erased any sense of short-coming, disability and limit to my self-worth.
The path was paved for me to walk and discover myself and the world around in all it's multiversal existentialism. The knowledge, experience, and awareness I gained aroused deep insights from the caverns of my heart, the recesses of my mind, and the sanctum of being that was further guided by the wisdom of my revered mentors and elders. This is how I discovered the nature of my being; the purpose of my existence, and the role thal I am here to play as a social entrepreneur.
It is in utmost humility, gratitude and with a overwhelming sense of good fortune that I can say. this journey of Me began, continues, and shall always be a journey of We - those people have touched my life in so many ways, and helped shape my vision for a life that serves the cause ol the betterment ofs society.
