I interviewed Mr. Shrivastava because he had first-hand experience of growing up in a rural area and in poverty, but still was able to persevere and go on with his life. He was excited to share his life story with me, during the interview. I would like to thanks him for answering my questions to such an extent that I could imagine what life was like during his early childhood.

During the interview, calm and casual environments that he could say anything that came to mind without any hesitations. Mr. Shrivastava as taught me a lot about growing up in poverty in India and how he didn’t let that stop him from being successful and thriving in life.
