More than imparting knowledge, teaching is about inspiring others to discover their purpose and potential. It all happened in my childhood when I started teaching my cousins and maids’ children. I have sensed that children are always enthusiastic about learning different things and when motivated, they themselves can create new ideas. I have found that teaching at an NGO was more like a calling which not only helped me instil knowledge in children but also gave me an opportunity to blend with the less fortunate. I could see myself building a strong relationship and working hand in hand with them, as it gave me enormous satisfaction and confidence in whatever I did. The world is diverse and fascinating and I am sure if we keep on chasing our dreams, they would surely be transcended.
