My life took a big turn after my two online journalism & web 2.0 trainings in 2009, respectively in Macau and Bonn, Germany. Deutsche Welle Akademie helped me achieve this great honour and experience.

Since the year 2009, I got more and more interested towards online journalism, web 2.0, social media, networking, peer broadcasting with the great belief that yes people are getting connected in a real social way and it is now way better than what was happening a decade back. My dream is to work for an international broadcaster and it’d be just too good to work with online or radio division.

I love literature and films. I can barely manage any time to read books.
