Kunal’s presentation made me actually believe it was possible to live the life I wanted to live by following my passions and listening to myself. Fewer speeches have proven more insightful to me than Kunal’s presentation last year. I still carry his advice with me to this day in hopes of bettering myself and finding my path.
