Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hi
My name is Alex and I’m a 24yo student from Jalandhar, Punjab, India. My name is actually something else but I got by this name on social media to prevent my friends or relatives or other people to find me lol.
I’m a software developer and a recent graduate. I like listening to music, playing games, watching YouTube, etc. I love my family and people in general. I love helping and volunteering whenever possible to support good causes.
What Inspires You Every day? : Honestly, I don’t have any people in real life that inspire me lol. I look up to a few people online who do which include: Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, and Mr. Beast, etc. I love these people and love what they do. These people inspire me and give me hope for a better world. They’re super generous and open about a lot of issues including mental health and others. They have gone through so much in life with so much grace, it’s inspiring. They give back to the community and are super kind in general. I just wanna be like them if not better in near future.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: The words of wisdom according to me are: don’t be too nice. The world is unfair to those who are but at the same time, as Taylor Swift says “Never be so clever you forget to be kind, never be so kind you forget to be clever”. Always have personal boundaries because people will literally destroy you If you keep giving unconditionally, stay true to yourself, stand up for yourself, your family & friends. Don’t take anybody’s shit and just be happy.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : My ultimate goal in life, like most people, is to be successful, rich, and famous. I’m moving to Canada in August to start my PG studies and after that, I want to work hard to start my own software business. I want to be a philanthropist and help people. I want to do so much more that’s a secret but the money I will make will always go to good causes like homeless shelters, non-profit, organizations, etc.
The world is struggling and I hate it the way it is right now and I want to do so much more to change it. I know I will make it. There’s no doubt about it. I trust in God and my ability to do it.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : The pandemic has been really hard for me like most people. I suffer from depression and severe anxiety along with OCD etc. I had so many plans for the past year and would’ve been in Canada by now studying for my PG but it all was postponed due to covid. The past year was so stressful. All these years I thought I had control over my OCD but it came back so much worse the last year and the depression got worse too. The anxiety about my future doesn’t let me sleep at night. All of this caused me to be an insomniac. I can’t sleep at night and usually go to sleep at around 5 am to 2 pm which is super bad but I can’t change it before I make any progress in life towards my goal. The pandemic makes me feel very stressed and unable to change my current situation. I’m working on it and I hope everyone gets out of this well.
What is a message you would like to give others? : Just be kind to one another. There’s already so much hate in this world. I know this has been said over and over by so many people and celebrities on the internet that it’s boring to hear but it’s true.
The racism has to stop, Help someone who you feel is being hurt due to racism in public or any other situation. A little help goes a long way. Be the change you want to see in this world.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: As I said earlier, Alex isn’t my real name and I’m not going to share my real name in this too lol. My online presence is a complete mystery to the people I know. The main reason is that I’m Gay. Wow, this is the first time I’ve said this out loud and it feels so nice. None in my life knows I’m gay. I don’t wanna disappoint my family. I just wanna getaway to Canada to start my studies and make friends there and eventually come out to them and live my life normally. I hope I get what I dream of soon and make my parents happy and proud.
Thanks for reading this. 🙂
