What or who inspired you in life?
Anangsha Alomyan: I have been inspired by the public and sports figures like Roger Federer (Lawn Tennis player), Shah Rukh Khan (Filmstar), and Gary Vaynerchuk (an Entrepreneur).
How has your journey been till now?
Anangsha Alomyan: So overall, the journey has been very surprising each day. Just like the usual kid of my age, I was always indulged in sports in childhood.
I am trained in swimming, badminton, table tennis, and lawn tennis.
Also, I was very keen on participating in extra curriculum activities all the time that is when fine arts, Indian Classical music, photography, and drama came into the picture. More than a hobby, I have also represented Assam, inter-district, inter-school, Delhi University in Tennis and won various awards for the same in different competitions.
When it comes to a public figure, people usually see all the glittery part. What do you have to say about that?
Anangsha Alomyan: Absolutely, that is one thing I have learned on social media platforms. Here, everyone thinks all that glitters is gold and the grass is always greener here. Many people think that my life is all about travelling and having fun.
But, what people do not acknowledge or talk about is the effort that goes behind all that. I worked my ass off to get where I am today. I still remember, when other kids were partying in my school and college days, I devoted myself to the game and things that I am good at and honed my skills.
How has blogging changed your life? How do you think it is better than having a 9-5 job?
Anangsha Alomyan: I knew that I am not cut for 9-5 jobs. I took a big risk, because I always thought that the universe had a different plan for me.
But many people made fun of me, some people used to ask me what if I don’t make it, some of my friend’s parents suggested that I should enroll in some government job and then travel in the later part of my life.
Although I personally believe doing something like this – different – makes you a stronger person. And, that’s exactly what it has done to me. I feel As long as I believe in my skills, I am unstoppable and invincible. God is within me and that is all I needed and no one else.
Answering your second question, I think not being stuck on the desk is quite liberating. Currently, I am creating content on social media for travel companies (my profession). It was not easy at first, obviously. I started with Rs 1500 as my monthly salary and now I am earning more than a standard job as for me, there was no option to fail ever.
What kind of content do you usually deal with in your blogs?
Anangsha Alomyan: I have a much-diversified approach. I make sure I show the audience something meaningful, something unique.
I try to indulge in art and create funny videos. Also, I post my travel photos and write-ups. There is no specific genre as such, I just aspire to inspire people through my content work.
Any message for your audience?
Anangsha Alomyan: Life gives you so many surprises, which even I myself am awed with. I think that the journey is more beautiful than the destination, so keep moving and enjoying it than worrying about where you are reaching.
What are the future plans?
Anangsha Alomyan: I have a lot of plans in the future, which I wouldn’t reveal it now.
I like to surprise my audience.
