I have a few hobbies. I cycle through various activities such as squash, tennis, ping-pong, hiking, biking, dancing, jewellery making, painting, reading, traveling, and other artsy activities. Oh, I am currently learning Spanish, too!

As a CSE Graduate Student Association Coordinator, I also get to coordinate events, parties, and spend money on things such as a pool table for our department.

In college, I debated seriously enough to become the Vice Captain of the Inter Varsity Debate Team, though it is but a thing of the past now.
