I am a BA (honors) graduate from the tiny island of Sri Lanka. Unsuprisingly, I have grown to love cricket, and basketball. While I spend way too much time in front of screens I still make time to be outgoing, true to my extrovert nature, spending it with friends and famly. The dynamics of my life has prepared me to handle situations and people with tact.

My most motivated was when I was completing my final major project. It was the first project that I went 360 utilizing all platforms to solve a problem in Sri Lanka.
