Hey All, this is Cinto. I am originally from India, currently working for a tech company in the United States (more precisely The Silicon Valley). My friends who know me claim that I am humourous, a good motivator, and very friendly. Yes, I keep asking them once in a while :P.
I have always loved writing. My oldest memory of writing goes back to when I was 9 years old and I wrote a story for a local town competition. I came 3rd. I've written fiction and plays for my school and college. Recently started writing on Medium.
I am a huge fan of traveling alone. Like many others, my first solo trip was due to my friends canceling their plans, and my determination to see Roger Federer. I wrote about my experience in the below medium article. It was published in The Ascent and is one of my best articles with more than 1K claps
Many times we ponder about the mistakes we made when we were younger. We wonder if we could have guided our own self to focus on things that are important. This article is very close and personal to me and was appreciated on Medium.
Things I would tell my 20-year-old self
“Do something today that your future self will thank you for”
I tried fiction for the first time on Medium. It was inspired by a book I read a while back. I’ve good great comments on this and requests from people asking to write more around this genre.
If there are folks from the tech world, this article was one of my first ones and did best in terms of monetary benefits. I had been working on this for a while and wanted to share my knowledge with the world. It was published in “The Startup” and earned me close to 100$ to date
