Hey! I am Prachi Roongta, a soon-to-be-17-years-old-Sagittarius student at Fountainhead School, Surat. I am an INFP, so I can be shy at first, but once people get to know me, they pretty much get the whole package of weird, caring, angry, and a million other feelings and faces of me. I have always been a creative individual, and have been passionate about art. I have been dancing since I was in kindergarten, I have always come back to painting, acting lets me escape reality and be a different person, and music always inspires. However, I would love to improve my artistic skills, especially pottery and ceramics – and art I have recently come to enjoy. Having always been more art-oriented, I have never really had the chance to properly explore and enjoy sports. However, I have had the chance to play volleyball, badminton, and do skating, all of which I someday wish to learn, play, and do more of. Another dream of mine is to learn surfing. I am dead-afraid of oceans and seas, and I wish to overcome it someday and be able to surf – because even just the idea of it seems so cool!
My goal in life is to work in fashion. It has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. I love to buy clothes, style them, and just explore different aesthetics. ‘Style is a way to say who you are, without having to speak’ -Rachel Zoe- I am in complete agreement with this quote- I express myself through my clothes, style, and the way I carry myself. Recently, I have been made aware of the more harmful side of the fashion industry and being an advocate for climate change I constantly try to take all the measures I can, from my end, to reduce the impact clothes have on our planet. It has always been one of my biggest dreams to travel the world, explore different cultures, try new cuisines, and meet new people. Just the idea of doing all of those things infuses me with exhilaration and inspiration.
Life has not been easy for me, or for anyone for that matter. I have learned that I will need to work for what I want and work hard. envisioning myself living my dream life constantly motivates me to do my best and be my best. I can not wait for my life to surprise me, challenge me, give me ups, downs, and all sorts of turns, and most of all I can not wait for my life to make me the best me I can be.
