Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I'm an American Sri Lankan with a passion for content creation. Through a previous internship, I interviewed one of my favorite authors - NYT Best-Selling author S.K. Ali and I got to work on a UX web design project with a professor when I was an undergraduate at The College of New Jersey. Shortly after graduation, I moved to Maryland and I started a few projects while in quarantine.

Interesting Factoid

I started my own podcast called Raise Your Words co-hosted with my friend, Andrea Shaw
