Expression to Empowerment
Thanks for dropping by
Expression is the most significant human capacity, isn't it? I mean that's excatly what differenties us from any other life on planet. Having the ability to voice our feelings, emotions, shift perspectives, redefine perfection, and philosophize human experiences is our prerogative. Since always, endless individuals have, through their writings, captured the essence of human experiences, both good and not so good. In the process, they contributed in giving new directions to our societies. It would be unfair to see ourselves in the same light as these individuals, but we can always aspire and play our part.
Why do we write?
Expression to Empowerment!
From exposing the inefficiency of monarchy as the form of governance in the French Revolution, to sparkling the idea of liberty during the American Civil Rights Movement, to stirring a torrent of patriotism and freedom in the heart of every citizen Indian Independence Campaign, writers have played a significant role in moving the revolutionary ideas into transforming actions. Realizing the power of words and taking inspiration from the writers who are the movers and shakers of the society, we took an initiative to bring the most creative minds together and utilize the magical power of expression in leaving some positive influence and an indelible impression on the minds of our curious readers.
We are a family of percipient writers, whose each piece of art is like a welcome relief for anyone, sailing over life’s solemn boat, seeking direction to reach their destination. Their meaningful observation of life will definitely help you gain a clear vision about life and make the best out of most challenging times in your life. As our motto suggests ‘Expression to Empowerment!’ i.e we can feel through our collective vision of individual upliftment; transcending the limitation of time and space which separate us. Happy Reading!
Must have spent hundreds of hours carefully handcrafting my stories and poems, writing articles on uncomfortable social issues and ongoing politics, but never found it as hard as writing a few lines about myself. Isn’t it the biggest irony? Most of us are experts on what's going on outside and have abundant comments on everything except ourselves. And nearly all of us struggle when it comes to honest self-examination. Anyways, let me try!
I’m Shreyash Sharma and I’m a student, not of any university but life. I study Economics and International Relations at City University of Hong Kong. However, there’re a plethora of things that excite me- Indian Politics, Geopolitics, History, Journalism, Literature -to name a few. For most of my life, I’ve been an autodidact. Since my schooling years, I’ve been terrible at math. Somehow I couldn’t establish a good equation with this subject. But you know the interesting part, I never abandoned this love-hate relationship with math, and here I’m pursuing a stream which has an overwhelmingly huge component of advanced calculus and tons of accounting. My only solace is my minor- International Relations -which is a comfort zone I resort to whenever ‘math’ stares at me.
I thoroughly enjoy reading and writing. I love writing, reading, and reflecting on almost every interesting thing in life. Literature is my favorite place to go to when I’m looking for an escape from reality. Sinking deeper and deeper into the writings of Premchand, Gurudev (Rabindranath Tagore), Sarojini Naidu, Mahadevi Verma, Henry Worthworth Longefellow, Oscar Wilde and so many others has had an amazing influence on me. Besides, history is something which connects me deeper with my roots, society, culture, civilization, and dharma. During the pandemic, like many, I too had a lot of time to turn inward and naturally focus myself, and started my personal blog. Soon this turned into a passion. I also write for City University of Hong Kong’s DiverCity Student Publication exercising my creative muscle to write stunning articles for my university. Starting this year, I started writing columns for a local Hindi newspaper ‘Satya Prakashit’ in Kanpur. Feel free to skim through my articles from the ‘publications’ section on my Linkedin profile.
I started working from the age of 18, right after my plus two, as a JYEP (Junior Youth Empowerment Program) facilitator. My role was taking active participation in the community service initiatives such as serving at specially abled centers, old-age homes, and training teenagers with an aim to create an awareness and community service attitude in them. After that I started working as an ESL (English as a Secondary Language) trainer at a language institute in Lucknow. I’ve worked as an ESL and IELTS trainer for over 4 years now. My first encounter of a workplace was being the youngest employee and teaching adults effective communication. Over these years, I got the opportunity to help, literally hundreds of people improve their communication/presentation/interview skills, a lot of who were engineers, technocrats, scholars, bankers, medical professionals, UPSC aspirants, IELTS test takers, and master’s students. I also help study abroad aspirants with personal statements, university essays and application procedure.

"In this world of falsehood, I try being a source of truth for those who are oblating their lives for it. One thing escorts, the days were tough and struggles hard; swollen eyebags and a plethora of time has been spent reaching here, but all that supported the mental health was my thought of :
