This week’s Featured Contributor believes in originality and has some great advice to pass along, “Always be you!” Thirsty to discover new things, Anupriya014 also suggests that we appreciate everything, but expect nothing (so that everything will seem like a lovely surprise). And, if I do say so myself, she seems to be living this advice to the fullest as a dynamic Floating Supervisor active in many categories on Answers.com. One final thought from Anupriya, “If life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, than show life a thousand reasons to smile.” Smile while reading on…
What is your Answers.com user name and the history behind it?
My Answers.com user name is Anupriya014. “Anupriya” is my first name and “014” is the date on which I was born. Many people give fake names or something completely made up. But I think a person should give his or her true name (at least first name) to an educational site like Answers.com. I take everything seriously that is related to this site. Therefore, I selected the name Anupriya014.
Would you care to tell us about your family?
My family consists of my parents and one brother. My father is a doctor, my mom is a housewife and my brother is in 9th standard.
Do you have any pets?
Not currently. But I had a rabbit which died in 2008.
Where do you live, how long have you lived there and why do you like the area?
Up until the middle of last year, I used to live with my family in a small town. But now I am in capital of my state (Lucknow) because there is no degree college in my small city. I have lived here since 1994. I like this place because it has a calm environment, not much hustle and haste, with lots of greenery. You can get a perfect peace of mind. You can provide your children a nice study environment here because they will not be diverted much due to big malls, etc. In fact, a studious child can study anywhere here – but not all children are so studious that they will bind their minds only to their studies.
Where did you grow up and do you have any special memories of your childhood?
I have many memories and all of them are special. Some of them are playing with my father and brother, getting study lessons from my father, morals by mum, my best friend Ritupriya, my dances in school functions and my awesome teachers and school.
What educational information would you like to share?
I have completed my school/high school education from my town. I haven’t completed my college education yet, so no degrees currently. I have just completed my first year in college.
What are your key areas of knowledge, interests or expertise?
I love science, particularly biology/biotechnology, but I have knowledge in many fields. I love to know more and more and discover new things. I love to dance and received proficiency award for it. I love music, too. Not only listening, but also understanding the lyrics.
Do you have any collections or hobbies?
I like to do lots of searches on Internet. I like to help people. I have a good, but not so big English songs collection.
What are a few random facts about yourself?
1. I talk much about philosophy, but when I get angry I forget everything. I am kinda short tempered. 2. I love to study but there are many times when I prefer other things. 3. I want to do much for the world while I am alive.
