Thank you for that presentation. And please don't call me ma'am. I'm you're age. I think.
How old is everybody here? Maximum.
I just turned 23, so we're the same age.
Thank you so much for having me.
I'm very, very happy to be here and addressing this crowd. Who's…
I consider you as my friends, all of you because we are the same age.
I don't know. I don't know where to start.
So I'm a student myself, I just finished my graduation.
And all I want to say is that this life that you're living right now, your college life, this life is your most, most important period.
You should really, really focus on your college life, because what I did is I missed out on my college years because I was very busy practicing kickboxing and karate1 and mixed martial2 arts.
I had no time.
My college was two hours away from where I used to live.
I am not really from proper Bombay.
I am from this place called Kalyan, which is sort of at the outskirts3 of Bombay.
So I used to travel 2 hours for my college, but I had no time because I had to focus more on my sports that was my first priority4 always.
So I missed out on my college days.
I did not go for college festivals.
I did not have a group of friends. You know, all these groupies, homies. I didn't have no homies.
I was alone, and I had only one best friend, and that's it.
That's my college life.
And I really, really feel sad that I missed out on it.
But then I focused on sports, and that is how. That is how everything happened. That is how my life changed.
And if you have something in life that you really, really like, if you have a special talent or if your heart is into something else, I will not say that completely neglect5 studies.
Do not ever neglect studies. I'm a graduate. YO! Okay?
Don't neglect studies, but then focus on what you're really, really good at and make that your strong point, because that's what I did as well.
