What Is Your Favorite Sound?

Bhajan and devotional songs.

What Project would a laptop help you with?

I teach workshops at a women’s center that helps integrate victims of violent crimes and domestic abuse back into society. We teach business skills, math, reading and writing; everything a woman needs to become a well-rounded and independent person.

It would let me perform administrative tasks for the women’s workshop. I’d also like to start use our our old projector when I teach classes; but without a computer I can’t make that happen.

Seeing the difference between new students and graduates. Watching their growth is an amazing feeling that never gets old.

Hindi and English.

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