From childhood, I have been an ardent game enthusiast and it has never stopped me from buying a Play Station 4, and a seperate TV.

I feel gaming is not just about holding the Joystick and playing. It is beyond that. Just completed playing Uncharted Lost Legacy.

Apart from that I am a part of Toastmasters International, which focuses on improving communication and leadership skills. Through toastmasters i have given various short presentations, performed stand-up, been a judge at speech contests.

Also i am a fitness enthusiast and I have completed two 10k marathons under 50 minutes.

Is giving talks your full time job?

Sep 25, 2:23AM EDT1

hi Kristen,

No I have still not converted my passion towards public speaking into a profession.

Like i said in my previous comment,I work for a company in my town called Hirotec India Pvt. Ltd which specialises in car door tooling manufacturing.

I am into designing welding fixtures of closures. for all the Original Equipment Manufacturers(OEMs) like Ford, Chrysler, GM, Etc..

Closures is a technical term which refers to the doors, the hood and the decklid. In the below image, circled in red are the ones I am working for.

We take care of all the process from Sheet metal stamping to welding as there are many small parts inside each door which requires welding.

Hope I have answered your question. :)

What do you like best about PlayStation 4?

Sep 24, 1:15PM EDT0

Hi Brittany,

Through its improved hardware, Sony had been constantly trying to give the bext gaming experience to its end user,

The best thing i liked about play station 4 is the sharpness it gives to the subject and its surroundings.

There is a massive difference in the level of sharp texture that the gaming has that it gives a hear warming feeling to the user who is playing it. :).

Hope i have answered your question. :)

Sep 24, 11:03AM EDT0

Hi TOWNSENDTAMMY,

My Most Favorite games to play are GTA V, Drive Club, Uncharted Lost Legacy, Uncharted 4 and NBA Live 2K18.(I know only the demo has arrived, but it is so addictive to play :)).

I have mentioned above games based on the number of times i play each of the games from the start. I should say the graphics, gameplay are stunning and I am in awe every time I play it :).

Who hires a toastmaster and how much do you charge approximately?

Sep 24, 10:37AM EDT0

Hi TABBOTT,

Anyone can hire a toastmaster for to give speeches if they find the speakers content credible and appealing to the audience they are involved with.

I still have not started to get paid for my speeches as of yet as i was considering Public Speaking just as a passion. I would be converting that passion to profession soon. :)

Hope i have answered your question. :)

How do you train for a marathon?

Sep 24, 3:32AM EDT0

Hi EMILY25,

Before signing up for a marathon, i ran in a park by forming a pattern inside the park so I knew how much distance I covered and in what time you have covered.

I did not use any apps when i trained. It was just all approximate.

Then i found out my strength and weakness(depending upon how my body reacted before/after the jog). I signed up for the marathon and worked on my strengths and weakness.

I found it initially tough, but later it became a habit.

I hope this has shed some light on my training. Let me know if there are anything else, I would be more than happy to help you. :)

What do you talk about in your speeches and who hires you?

Sep 24, 12:58AM EDT0

Hi Theresa82,

Like i said in the previous comment,my speeches would be inspirational under the context of 1. How to face failures2. How to be committed and motivate yourself constantly3. How "it is okay to be crazy, imperfect" but still be successful in life.

I never did think of getting into professional speaking as public speaking was a hobby of mine. It is just now that I understood the fullest potential of being a Professional speaker. I am yet to charge for my speeches.

Hope i have answered your question. :)

It depends every day.  On weekends i would have close to 2 hours or more to play.

Since I am working and work takes most of my time, during weekdays, I would get less than half an hour to play.

Hope i have answered your question. :)
