If I could make everyone in the world watch one TED talk, I would make them watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0VrZPBskpg
A few years back I came across a movie called Earthlings which changed my life forever! You can watch it for free on YouTube.
I am passionate about animal rights and finding solutions to issues that mankind faces. I enjoy dancing and partying! I am mostly agnostic, but Jainism and Buddhism inspire me a lot.
