Previously I was working as Project Coordinator in an NGO, now working as Accounts Officer in SWAM (Social Welfare Association for Men) in my trans-identity. I am proud to be a Social Activist. My aim is to become a good editor and work in promising movies, I would love to be an example in my community and be a role model for my generation.

And, this is what an ordinary day is for me...
