Unfortunately, it’s that time in my life where I have to hang up The Urban Nerd cape and move onto the next chapters of my life. I had a great time playing this character/alter ego, and definitely have some great memories.
I will be still active on social media – but transitioned to more on a professional level.
Don’t worry – I will be still hosting some awesome events in the near future – and who knows – The Urban Nerd maybe making random appearances during those times.
If you still want to continue to support and follow me – here are the new info updates:
Come to my “Jain Swag” Session at this year’s YJA Convention taking place in Tampa, FL from July 5th to July 8th! I will be speaking both Friday and Saturday!!
Also, if you want to order your Jain Swag T-Shirt, which I will be giving away at the convention (Everything related to the T-shirt is under The Urban Nerd Brand’s discretion), please make sure you order it before June 27th! June 27th will be the last day to order them, so we can get them made in time. Also, we need at least a 100 orders to fulfill the minimum, so there is a high chance that if your color T-shirt may not be the one chosen out of the 3. Only one color will get chosen, unless there are over 100 orders for each color T-shirt. We will email you if there is a change in the order, and will give you the option for a refund.
So, apparently the episode I did for Sony TV Asia covering the Varli Food Festival (as Raj Jhaveri..not “The Urban Nerd”) that happened in NYC aired in over 130 countries already…..and I had no clue. It was a 30 minute segment with three commercial breaks…and for those who does not have the Sony TV channel…well you can watch it here! The episode includes celebrity chefs such as Vikas Khanna, Sanjeev Kapoor, Floyd Cardoz, and friends like Parul “The Cake Designer” Patel, and 92.3 FM’s Jay Dabhi!
It seems like I started a trend to do charity events during birthdays. Two of my friends wanted to do something similar I did back in January, but wanted me involved in it, as well as host it. We ended up doing it on May 18th at SPiN NYC, and we had tons of sponsors this time (http://www.antibullygala.com), and the fundraiser was for Bullying.Org. In all honesty, it was a great turn out, and it was a lot of firsts for people coming to one of my events – but to those people, this wasn’t the best in my eyes. The Aquarius Charity Affair was quite something else – the quality of that event was close to flawless. I’m still learning, and I can’t wait until the next fundraiser event I’ll host.
Meantime, check out UrbanAsian’s coverage of the event!
Salma and I decided to start up a weekly show – it was a last minute idea for UrbanAsianTV, and it was a lot of fun! Eventually, the camera and the set will get better – but everything is still experimental.
So here it is, a Goofy Nerd and a former Miss India Illinois discussing events that has been happening in the past week.
