Do you remember the first time you walked into that room, the very room that was
dreaded by many and so by you? But you, a warrior as you are, still took that brave step
Do you remember how all that fear, nervousness and hesitation faded in thin air when

To be honest, it still feels like a battlefield sometimes, but I am better armoured now to give
a tough fight.
