Hello! I’m Surya 🙂 I am a
24 25 year old Architect from School of Planning and Architecture, New Delhi, and Product Designer from Domus Academy, Milan (does this sound like a resume? Whoops 😛 ).
Growing up, I was ‘normal’. I had no passion except for hating routine with a vengeance. While everyone else I knew nonchalantly settled into jobs after college, I spent the entire week longing for the weekend, and then started sulking on Friday, dreading Monday. Work. Home. Sulk. Repeat.
I quit my job in 10months, spent a few months doing nothing and realised I could end up whiling my life away. So, looking for inspiration, I moved to Milan to study Design.
After escaping the shackles of my liberal yet sheltered upbringing, I started traveling. And that’s when I found myself.
Once the unremarkable girl with no apparent ambition, I now have the coolest stories. I’m the one who doesn’t just live, but thrives,for I have jumped off cliffs, hitchhiked solo in countries I didn’t speak the language, trusted strangers and had out of the world experiences. Each trip makes me come alive.
My family says I became this person, I say I always was.
I want to see the world, decipher unintelligible street signs and drink coffee in cozy little cafes with new friends while absorbing their cultures. Live with them and laugh with them. Grow with them.
And maybe somewhere along the way I will find my peace.
Now that I’ve told you all about myself 🙂 It’s your turn to talk to me. Hello, my name is Surya… And you are? 😉
