I can’t believe how much I’ve accomplished this year!

From graduating college to making progress on my side hustles, it’s been a wild ride.

Here’s a list of some of my proudest achievements:

✨ Completing dream interviews with Unicorn Founders — something that had been on my bucket list for years!

Not only did I get to talk to some of the most successful entrepreneurs out there, but it also taught me that people are more reachable than you think.

✨ Receiving email responses from some of my biggest inspirations, including Vineeta Singh, Shark Tank India Guest Judge, and Vinod Khosla.

This taught me that with a little effort and persistence, anything is possible.

✨ Being featured as KP’s Top 3 podcast guest appearance — a huge honor that taught me the importance of the energy and vibes you put out into the world.

✨ Graduating from college — a huge milestone

✨ Securing partnerships/collaborations with Techstars New York, Pygma — an amazing opportunity that has allowed me to grow my network and connect with some truly incredible people.

✨ Crossing 100 subscribers on my Venture Capital Newsletter — a small but meaningful achievement that has taught me the power of consistency and dedication.

✨ Ranking on the podcast charts in several different countries — a humbling experience that has taught me that there’s always room for growth and improvement.

✨ Crossing 50 subscribers on my YouTube channel — a platform that I’m excited to put more energy and effort into in the coming year.

Reflecting on this year, I’ve learned so much about the importance of finding product-market fit for my podcast, as well as the power of persistence and determination in achieving my goals.

On a personal level, I’ve learned the value of always asking for what you want and the importance of family and community in achieving success.

Finally, fasting during Ramadan has taught me the importance of discipline, self-control, and mindfulness — lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
