Hello!steemCreated with Sketch.

There's often a block I think we all encounter when someone asks us who we are, or if we're to introduce ourselves to a gambit of strangers.

How do I even start? Typically, with my name?
I'm Shruti Suresh.

Does that give away anything? I think not.

Are we then, defined by our education?
I did my undergrad in Psychology, Literature and Communication studies, (And specialised in the latter) in Mount Carmel College, Bangalore.
Which should mean I'm good at this communication thing, right?

Well, communication studies ranged from understanding and appreciating Indian art (as much of it as you can fit in a semester, from being a classical dance critique to understanding the 32 folk dances of India, the folk/ classical/ semi-classical music and fine art) to understanding quantum physics enough to write about it.

So what am I doing right now?
I'm training to become a conservation scientist.

I jumped into working for wildlife post-college (not with. for) I did some unartistic media and marketing communication work for a local NGO and WWF-Cambodia before heading for an MSc in Conservation and Biodiversity.

Am I then, what I want to work as?
I genuinely don't know. I'm a big believer in learning on the job, and the kitchen and the dancefloor. Pretty much everywhere.

I know I want to spend my life devoted to conserving animals.
I'm still heavily immersed in the arts while being perpetually drawn outwards to the natural world.
Will these interests split apart? Will they merge into one another?

Let's find out.

Greetings from Brittandjosie from the Netherlands

It's so kind you took some time out to read my first post! Thank you.

I'll visit the tips. And I'm very excited to be a part of this journey!

Can you ride the elephant and dance on elephants? Love the photo. Lovely. I love dancing.

Well, I wouldn't want to ride the elephant to begin with, it's a very harmful practice that requires torture and captivity To dance on one would be bad for the dancer and the elephant! I'm glad you love dancing, looking forward to seeing posts about dance from you. Also, have youse seen my friend karunya's blog? She's the first comment on the post. You'd love her posts!

Tarzan loves to dance on elephants. It does not hurt elephants. Elephants love it. And we can have elephants in zoos. That is not a bad thing. That is a good thing. We can do that. We should do that. I had many pet cats. Elephants can be pets too. It is a beautiful thing. People are more important than animals. We are the kings.

welcome @shruti.suresh to steemit, be sure to check out other blogs and interact with folk so that we know you are here. I have included you in my post introducing new steemians. Have fun and great intro.
