HobbiesI am a friendly, warm person who loves interacting with people. I enjoy cooking and experimenting with new recipes. Its my passion and have a personal cooking blog. I also enjoy teaching a lot , which gives me a chance to help students in a way that shows them forward. It's immensely satisfying when a student comes to me and says that he/she now gets it :)
