25 – Tilonia Rajsthan

What Are You Most Passionate About?

I have a passion for writing Sher o Shayri (a form of poetry) and short stories.

Who Is Your Hero? Why?

That would be Mr. Bunker Roy. As founder of the Barefoot College, he gives confidence and support to rural villagers to learn important trades such as engineering, medicine, and accounting to grow their communities.

What Is Your Favorite Sound?

The sound of nature, like birds chirping and the ambiance of a gentle breeze.

What Project Would A Laptop Help You With?

I am currently serving in the STD booth of Barefoot College. This booth is part of a local social wellness program that educates the people of my village about the dangers of STDs and measures to prevent the spread of these contagious diseases.

How would a laptop help you?

Currently my responsibilities include clerical duties such as maintaining call logs, appointment logs, and greeting the visitors while taking their information. As it stands now, this is very difficult and time consuming to do by hand; but with a computer I would be able to work far more efficiently. With all the time saved I would be able to tackle extra duties such as answering email inquiries and booking appointments online.

What do you love about this project?

The best thing about being here is growing with the people I serve. I learn so much about people and life every day as I help the people of my village.

What Languages do you speak?

Hindi, English and Maarwari

Given a choice, would you prefer a Mac or PC?
