India now aims to be at the forefront of digital technology. There have been several reforms in the last few years to support this goal too. The process has been made a bit simpler by young entrepreneurs who have taken this as their responsibility and they are carrying it out pretty well.

Not just that, she also analyzed these gadgets by posting their reviews and also some tutorials as to how to use them.
When she latched onto YouTube, she didn’t do it just for entertainment purposes. She watched every video to understand how they were made and how they affected people. She gained crucial knowledge while watching these videos and at the same time considered it to be fun. Most videos that she watched were related to inspirational stories of people who made from rags to riches. She watched several such stories on YouTube and was very much inclined towards them.

When most teenagers are obsessed with playing games and chilling out in their life, Divya carved out a plan for her successful life and kept working on it relentlessly.
Just like most humans, she too met failure at a certain point in her life. But she didn’t let it stop her from achieving her dreams. When she was going through tough times, she turned to her followers to get to know them better. It is particularly why she receives support and love from them.
