G U Y A N A – Poonam Singh

“My family time is basically every Sunday mornings, where we attend mandir and give thanks to God. I know there are 24 hours in a day and people get busy, but I believe in always saying thank you for every breath I take and the person responsible for my being is God, and so praying is an integral part in my busy schedule.

“I don’t have a favourite dish, because I’m a big foodie. However, the only meat I’d rather eat is definitely chicken. My favourite fast food place is Popeyes and chocolate truffle cake will always be my favourite dessert.

“My message to young people, who consider me as their role model, is my philosophy. My philosophy is to always have a plan B. I know life will throw you countless opportunities but you may have just one aim.

“However if you think you have that potential and you’re capable of successfully carrying out the opportunities thrown at you then go right ahead without hesitating. Keep your main goal, keep working towards it, but if your main goal doesn’t work out exactly the way you had intended , then have a plan B, have something you can fall back on, do not give up because of one or two or three failures.

“Only a failure knows through success when it comes. So have a steadfast mind, stay focused and determined and you will be able to conquer the world.”
