Storytelling & Personal Branding Coach | President @ Bloggers Alliance | Speaker & Author | Member of Della Leaders Club
At age 6, he began his education with spectacles powered -6. Classfellows were not keen to make him a part of their outdoor sports teams for obvious reasons.
He was left with no option but to read more. Academically he has been a topper and won several prizes in co-curricular activities. Knowledge is power, and he realised few years later that he had turned an obstacle into an opportunity unknowingly. His ophthalmologist advised him to stop studying after Class X, but he defied medical advice and ended up with a PhD. He believes, "To be a good educator, you need to be a lifelong learner".
"The Obstacle is the Path" became his life philosophy and passing the stress interview of life with a smile became his mission. Facing obstacles very often, he developed a habit of turning obstacles into opportunities.
