My purpose is to be a conduit of truth and learning and to pursue that truth and learning in my career and with love in all parts of my life. To positively impact the consciousness of people throughout the world, giving a voice to the voiceless and being an inspiration to everyone I reach.
I started this blog when I was asked to do so by my lecturers when I started my undergraduate course, until then I didn’t know what a blog was (Really!). Since I started blogging I realised how amazing it is. I think everyone should get a chance to have their own blog and publish things close to their heart. That’s exactly what I intend on doing.
I came from Sri Lanka all the way to England to graduate and use my skills and knowledge to make a good impact on the poeple of the world (even in the slightest way). So I hope my blog will get me ever closer to achieving it.
Enjoy! and feel free to comment.
