About me


An avid phiosophy buff and an aspiring lawyer I am a person of varied interests. My interests range from football, international politics, debates, philosophy, coding, to just about anything under the sun. Due to my diverse range of hobbies, most people confuse me for a person who wants to master everything at once, however that is not the case. I believe that by narrowing one's interests down to one passion a person can go more than a mile down the road called life.

When your interests range from international taxation to Nietzsche's philosophy, it becomes difficult to summarise "what motivates you" in a few lines. I always look for something new that can excite me. I have recently come to develop a love for the law and its nuances. The aspect of law that excites me is its cohesive ability to keep society civilised and bolster progress at a level that goes beyond the individual, while also prioritising and ushering individual rights as its foundation.
