Alysa says:

Growing up, I’ve always had one thing constant in my life, Music. It has been my friend and guide, something I could turn to in times of solitude. I am an ambitious person and focused towards my goal in life. I strive to achieve perfection in whatever I do.  I don’t know what is in store for me in the long run, but I see myself accomplishing all my big and petty dreams. My aim in life is to be a professor and I also want to open my own cafe.

I strongly believe in this quote by Bob Dylan, “Don’t criticize what you can’t understand.”

As a realist, I know that life doesn’t always turn out as you want it to be, but, you have to do what you can do to make it better.

Nazneen says:

“It’s not the size of the dreamer; it’s the size of the dream that matters.” This quote by Josh Evans is what I live by religiously.”

I dream of love and of beauty. I love the beauty possessed by nature and with the help of my camera, love capturing every beautiful moment. My friends describe me as a bubbly and cheerful person. I love designing and art fascinates me. I aspire to be a Creative Designer. I believe that someday I will make my dreams come true.

Lemuel says:

Growing up, I have noticed if you need something so dearly you will have to work hard in achieving it. My skill in photography has been appreciated by many and I would like to create a name for myself in that field. I am very ambitious in person, I always believe there is something stored for all of us. Mine is to have a name; a name where one day people will remember me by my passion for photography.  As I always use this line “I see better with my camera”.

Shamin says:

Spreading happiness wherever I go and Caring for others comes naturally to me. I come across as a shy person but there’s a naughty side to me as well. I have a mind full of confusion and the only thing that calms me is being close to nature. Someday I believe my introvert self-will make interacting with people without the need for words a fad.

“Always keep your smile.”  That is how I explain life.

Israa says:

I am passionate about learning different languages and drawing, especially cartoons. I am crazy about gadgets and technology. Steve Jobs has always been my inspiration and this quote by him, ‘’Sometimes life’s going to hit you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did.”

BRANDING & MARKETING TEAM

Anishka says: 

People say I am creative, I couldn’t agree less; but what backs my creative self is the hard work I put into achieving perfection. I love painting and anything to do with art. Colors make me happy. I aspire to do something in the field of Media Marketing. I am an achiever and positivity doesn’t elude me. A good game of any sport is all it takes to fix my mood when I’m down. Hard work and Optimism makes me a better person and a go-getter.

A quote I believe in is,

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams, live the life you’ve imagined.” by Henry David Thoreau

Saima says:

I have gained strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which I really stop to look fear in the face. Sports is an essential part of my life, I can’t sit and watch a game of basketball or cricket, I need to be on the field playing the sport or else it fails to interest me. I’ve been gifted with the talent of dance. It comes as a secondary passion to me. I see myself making a niche for me in the travel industry.

Being a fan of Michael Jackson, I concur when he once said, “When they say the sky is the limit, to me that’s really true,” This line has given me the ability to challenge life and make the impossible.

Sadaf says:

My theory on life can be summed up in three words: it goes on. As a peoples person, I aspire to do something in the field of Client Servicing or Events Management. I come across as a bubbly person and spreading smiles is a virtue I’m gifted with. I consider myself to be an energetic person and indulge in any kind of adventure at the mention of it. I don’t expect too much from anyone or anything as not always our expectations are met. All I want from life is for it be happy and satisfying on my own terms. I have always been inspired by the quote, “Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.”

HEAD OF PUBLIC RELATIONS

Danielle says:

Happiness comes in small packages, that definitely describes me as a person. I love making new friends and talking endlessly. Writing comes to me as easy as talking does. I’m addicted to surfing the net for everything and anything interesting, media related and not. I like to sing and I’m a total foodie. As a profession, I see myself working in the Public Relations field. For someone who likes interacting with people and networking, I think I would create a pleasing image for myself in the industry. One quote that doesn’t fail to cheer me and boost my confidence is, ‘’Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” by Marilyn Monroe.

Suzzette says:

My aim is not to live forever; it is to create something that will. I love dancing, writing, photography, music, movies and food. I am a fighter and a hopeless dreamer. I am not always focused but when I want something, I can be a go-getter.  As most girls are, I too am obsessed with shoes. But what makes my life complete is my collection of novels.

“Books are mirrors; you only see in them what you already have inside you.”  Is a quote by author Carlos Ruiz Zafon, I have long believed in.

Aspiring to be a Copywriter, I also tend to see myself having published my very own novel by the time I am 30.

Imtenan says:

The better I is what defines how society sees me. What people expect of me may not always be what I am capable of giving them. There are a lot of expectations that different people have in their minds for me to achieve. I don’t see where I stand tomorrow, let alone a couple of years. However I have dreams that I am not willing to give up on that is to be the best copywriter anyone has ever seen. God knows I might get there but what I have learned about myself in the past 20 years is that I’m not a quitter. Even when you have certain dreams just to accomplish them some people take it to the next level, stepping on people to get to where you want to be. I may not come across as a good guy to some but what I believe in is to accomplish what you want but not at the expense of others.

‘A dream dreamt by one is a dream, but a dream dreamt by many is reality’- John Lennon

DESIGN HEAD

Neha says:

Design creates culture. Culture shapes values. Values determine the future. And all this defines and redefines who you are –  who I am. Currently pursuing my masters in Media and Communication, I am keen designer and love experimenting with gestalt and minimalism.
‘Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint you can on it.” – Danny Kaye (American comedian, musician and entertainer).

SOCIAL MEDIA

Srijita says:

For me life is all about memories and our ability to capture and remember the ones we love and erase the ones we detest. And photography is one thing, that  has helped me to realize, that moments don’t happen, we make them happen.

And the one quote that really inspires me, when I am low is this line from the Chbosky’s book, Perks of Being a Wallflower:

“I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there.”

Syeda says:

I am a very ordinary girl. I love reading books and watching movies. I am very very talkative or so people tell me. I am very confused about some things other things I know exactly what I want. I can be very moody but I try to be happy. I am right now in college enjoying and learning to be a journalist (my lifelong dream).
