I was born in Guyana and I migrated to Toronto with my parents when I was two. I now live in Champaign where I work at Yahoo. So, to sum up, I am Indian by descent, Guyanese by birth, Canadian by citizenship and living in the States.
I'm introspective and definitely an introvert, but I'm also outgoing and easy to get along with. I tend to show the world my happy public face, much of which comes across in this profile. Sure, it's a part of me, but the rest of me isn't just more of the same. My friends say I'm very honest. That's true, mostly because I'm a terrible actor, but in truth I don't verbalize everything that I think; then again, no one does. Perhaps I just express myself well.
When I was young, I had the notion that I would like to be able to get along with anyone. So, I spent my time learning a little bit about everything, thinking that no matter what someone talked to me about, I'd be able to converse with them about whatever they were interested in. I suppose it's rather ironic that what I needed to learn about interacting with people, or that is to say, that which is most interesting to people, doesn't come from a book.
When I am being myself, people say I'm awesome. When I try to be the awesome person I believe people think me to be, I'm not. It has taken me my whole life to learn that I shouldn't try too hard. Unfortunately, I am still learning that lesson. I am most comfortable around my close friends who know me well. I like that I don't feel pressured to be awesome around them. That must be why I am.
