A Bit About Me

Da (Taken care) phika (of by God) is what my name stands for… Famous for being an ambivert…. travelling is joy, food is love. In my leisure time I love to cycle, watch movies, swim, play outdoor games and spend time with people who matter the most to me. I’m most fond of cherishing the memories of my childhood days. My biggest inspiration is: my mother-my God.
Professionally, when it comes to work and research, I thrive to learn and gain knowledge to achieve perfection in every way. Striving to be the best version of myself each day and wandering, exploring about the unexplored keeps me going…Lastly…I quote “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step” and “Kamai yei hok”.
