I'm joining Service Space because ... the daily dose of inspiration loaded with rich personal experiences and experiments by the members of the community helps me become a better human being. ServiceSpace is my guide to living a meaningful life.
A good day to me is when ... i am able to keep calm and get on with whatever the day has in store for me
My hero in life is ...Anyone who's been able to put others before themselves
My favorite book is ...The Prophet. It made sense at 20 years, made a little more sense at 25, much more sense at 28 and absolute sense thereafter :)
One thing I'm grateful for is ... the love and care from family and friends, and the comfort in my heart that they are always going to be around when you need them.
