The Year of Apprehensions

Who am I?

I am a 24-year-old Indian woman. I had just finished my studies and I had secured a job in a field entirely different from what I had specialised in. Even after months of ardently pursuing what I am passionate about, it had all been futile and I had lost heart.

For us, people in AlterContacts, it was the positivity that we needed and it is much more that we got.

“I am not at all alone! We are not alone! Nobody is alone!”
