“There is a lot of peer pressure and competition being in the media industry as a presenter. And while the job might look glamorous, just like tonight with me wearing all this, I don’t let it get on my head, and I try to stay on my feet. Approval should not come from others but from yourself. And I am glad to be constantly around people who sees me as a person, as the person that I am. People who know who you are and are not into materialistic things. That is how I keep myself grounded by being around my friends and family, and reminds me of the person who I really am inside. This is, after all, just a job.”
