Humans of Seven Lakes: Arees Kamadia

What is your favorite memory from growing up?

My favorite memory would be when I went to Chicago for Christmas one year and it snowed on Christmas Day. It was so beautiful, and it was probably the first time I ever got to play in the snow.

What do you want to achieve in your life?

I want to be able to achieve happiness, whatever that may be, in my life to the point where I feel satisfied with where I am.

What is something you personally take pride in but others don’t really know about you?

I take pride in my drawings, which is something I don’t really often show or display to others. My drawings are meant for me to look at, which is why I tend to not show them to others.

What is a talent you wish you had?

I wish that I was able to sing opera.

If you had to pick one, what song defines you and why?

I would pick the song “Khaboon ke Parindey”, which is a famous song from the Bollywood movie “Zindagi na Milengi Dhobara”. It talks about how we should all learn to let go in life and try to see where that takes us, which is a motto that I try to live by everyday.

What product could you not live without and why?

I could not live without my MUJI pens because writing without them would be sacrilegious.

What is typically the last thing you think of before going to bed?

I think about all the things that I have to do tomorrow, which is not a good thing.
