For him, the competition made him realise his weaknesses, and helped him improve his versatility.

When asked about his goals he answers, “my immediate goal is to complete my bachelors degree in multimedia and design, which I am currently pursuing”.

However, his life long mission is to do something that would contribute to the welfare of the society. He considers himself to be a visionary and believes that the essence of life lies in the memories and the experiences gained by an individual, and that, life is more than just a race to come in the first place.
