When I was around 10 years old, I used to say that when I grow up, all I want is to become a teacher. My parents had bought me a chalk board and I would have my younger sister and all my imaginary students sit in class as I teach them something. I would give them handouts with maths problems to solve, then later pick them up and start scoring! I had so much pleasure doing that, it was almost impossible for my sister to ever get a chance to be the teacher when we role played!

For many years, that was it for me. I wanted to become a teacher. And then life happened. Years and years passed…Last month I was speaking at Paris Sorbonne University in Abu Dhabi. I was on stage and I had a couple of hundred students to motivate and inspire to be themselves powered by passion!

So in a way, I am a teacher now…finally at 38! I don’t get to teach maths or science, I don’t get to give quizzes, and thankfully I never have to mark exams or fail anybody. How cool is that! I get to teach everything that is not being taught in schools. I get to teach my own material. I get to ignite the fire inside their hearts and make them love the life they are living. I love seeing the spark in their eyes and many a times, it brings tears to mine. I’m grateful to be doing what I love and loving what I do. And my mission is to have a hell of a lot more people doing the same.

The opportunities are knocking, the doors are opening… and I’m giving it all I’ve got!
