As a member of Toastmaster club , to complete Competent Communication Certification I have to do 10 projects for Public Speaking.
Below is my first project – Icebreaker . (To introduce myself to the club).
Here it goes ….
THIS IS ME ….
I am rough enough to resist the life’s friction yet polished enough to make my name my way.
This is the way I define myself. Independent. Passionate. Dreamy. Bubbly. Thoughtful. The other side REBELLIOUS.
What started as a fun and a strong urge to start something new in life, slowly and steadily has become a passion now. A year back it was by an emotionally forced moment that I got involved in writing, trying to pack my affection and regards warmly on thank you note.
Gradually the idea to share my thoughts and viewpoints started surfacing. Not very confident of my new developed taste, I began as a novice micro blogger through social networking sites and SMS’es. As a matter of surprise, my friends like the style and motivate me to go further. Thus started my journey, on the route of, self discovery and inner soulful expression in the form of writing.
Good Afternoon …….
Let me take you back from my new passion and try to introducing myself. Hi I am Saakshi , and it spells S-A-A-K-S-H-I
From last week I feel writing BRDs , Service Manuals ,Test Cases etc or writing errands are much easy rather that learning about oneself and explaining to others .
Well , I will try my level best.
Born in ‘Chandigarh’, bought up in ‘Karnal’ ,I have been successfully into a FOUR year-long committed and live–in relationship with Bachelors of Engineering at ‘Kurukshetra University’. I won the legal separation and was awarded the Hons. Degree. Three and a half-year back I was transferred to ‘New Delhi’ to start my career. Have felt this wonderful city to be more close to my heart than my hometown.
Photography and trying new eating junctions was always the most enthused hobby, however exposure to wide variety of books, meeting people all over world , thanks to client base and membership to various Webmaster Forums are latest to join the hobby list.
You must be wondering why I emphasized on spellings of my name , especially when it’s so common. When I was born I was named Sakshi ; with single A. There is a small story behind it .
In CBSE affiliated schools we have to fill application form for Class X board examinations in Class IX, where we have to enter our details, such as name , father’s name , date of birth which will be printed on our passing certificate. I made an instant decision to add an additional A , making it S-A-A-K-S-H-I.
There were 3 major reasons behind it.
First , with an additional A , my attendance roll call was now ahead of 10 students.It was an achievement, I jumped from no 45 to no 33.
Second, it irritates me when people call me Sh-akshi . So now I can correct them its Sa-akshi.
Third, this was my first act to mark my own unique identity. Put my name on Google search page, you will find only my accounts till page no 5!!.
Life up till now has been a treat and full of serendipities. Being one of the brightest students and the head girl of my school , I have also faced embarrassing record of re-appearing in Semester I Mathematics exam 3 times and at last clearing it with precious ‘40’ passing marks in final year. I was placed during on campus recruitment for big shots like HCL and Steria just to wait for their cancellation mails due to 2008 recession. It was the era of depression and the ray of hope come from final year results. I topped my department at second position.
Being a typical Scorpion, I am always fascinated with anything that goes around and love to be independent. I am not a social butterfly (I just somehow manage my online presence) I prefer to do things on my own , just to explore what’s next in life . And if one is living alone for last 8 years, then it all becomes a habit.
As it’s said, change is the only constant thing.
From an extrovert kid to an introvert teenager and now an enthusiast professional, life is all about executing the change and surviving for the fittest.
There is a stubborn side of me also, that refuses to change. Few things that haven’t changed from last15 yrs as far as I remember.
My addiction for Maggie.
My craziness for Enrique’s songs.
My miserable condition by the very thought of failure.
My fear of dogs and rodents.
and My weird habit of wearing wrist watch while sleeping.
To conclude myself ,you may call me , a young lady , who longs for peace , loves her independence , with a habit of living life on a higher note , who is a true blue crazy fan of Enrique Iglesias.
