I was travelling in the car with my parents. It was during the drive that I heard an advertisement for the same on the car radio. I was very excited about it and asked my parents to register my name for the same. 

Tell us about your radio show?

I worked with RJ Garry , he was a wonderful person. RJ Garry had asked me to speak about cleanliness in Jalandhar city, and share a message with the residents. So, I told them that it is very important to keep the city clean.I firmly believe if we all imbibe the virtue of cleanliness and practice it at all points of time, not only will we progress individually but also as a nation.  

Cleanliness steps that Jalandhar people should take:

– Not throwing garbage on roads

– Keep dustbin bags wit yourself when you travel

– Follow the government’s guidelines on cleanliness

How did your school help you?

Our headmistress ma’am, Mrs. Namrata Sharma, made a video of me and sent it to the radio station which helped me get selected. All the other teachers and friends also encouraged me a lot. It was amazing. 

Do you see yourself as a RJ in the future?

Totally! I would love to be in this field. I haven’t thought of a name for my show yet, but it looks like a very creative profession.
