Chat time with Yangthy

Yan Murry, an author from Nagasconnect had a conversation with her and I’ll share it with you in a short excerpt.

Q. How do you think the mindset of our young Nagas are evolving in this modern world?

Yangthy Imchen:

In the present times, our youth have lots of capabilities and a potential to do well and succeed in life. We have been able to adapt to the western culture and technology but must broaden our mindset because is still not growing so we must try to do away with it.

Q. Was it difficult to apply for scholarship at the University of Sussex?

Yangthy Imchen:

At the point when I initially applied for this specific grant it was through the assistance of somebody however, I got back the reaction with a major letter ‘Rejected: Not Eligible for this Scholarship’. At that point I understood that I applied for SC classification and not ST. I was simply aimlessly tailing others with no appropriate self examination. Afterward, I reapplied for ST category and passed the screening and was called for meet with board of seven questioners. Fortunately I was all the while seeking after my Masters during the entire procedure so I didn’t sit around idly or took any hole for the reapplication of the grant. Directly after my graduation I got the grant for my PhD considers.

Q. What inspired you to create a YouTube Channel?


While there were numerous reasons why I began this channel. The first intention was to provide platform to those people who would love to share their story or experiences so that people get inspired or relate to or learn something. So probably it was a knowledge based and social awareness kind of approach.

That’s all folks…
