Hi. Are you looking for stories or some inspiration?
Welcome to On My Canvas!
I'm Priyanka Gupta. I quit my investment banking job to travel the world and do something meaningful.
Now, I write to change perceptions and help people travel.
I am from a small town in North India. About a decade ago, I graduated with a B.Tech. in Computer Science and Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi (IITD).
In 2016, five years into an evolving investment banking career, I decided that I had had enough of the corporate world. So, I quit my job. Writing and living a meaningful life was on my mind. I spent the next year traveling around South America and Southeast Asia, solo.
Launched in 2017, On My Canvas is a place where I talk about my travel journeys, mostly long and solo, and articulate personal growth ideas. These growth articles are an amalgamation of making my own path, breaking the boundaries in a conventional India, and are backed by tonnes of personal development books that I read.
If you want to see the world or want to bring a change in your life, On My Canvas is a good place to hang out and read some stuff. But let me warn you that I write long articles. I won't sell a place if I don't like it.
As a dear friend said, I think of life as a story. And so is this blog, a story, full of stories.
