Why Poornima thinks she should become star anchor:
Star news has provided a platform for the first time in the Indian television history. Since the time I born and understood things around me, I always thought of changing certain negative things in the society but always found myself incapable for that. I have grown up watching news anchors and always wanted to see myself in front of the camera connecting with masses. When I chose this profession and became part of media, I thought now I can bring some revolution in the society aspects and return something to the world. Today, in this fast changing world, media can connect with people and bring awareness and change in their lives. I have strong passion and capability to connect with masses and have deep inner desire to do something for the issues which are untouched and not yet explored. The only way I can explore and bring change in the society is, by being part of media and on the platform provided by Star News. I find myself a good human being and want to utilize my skills and finding my passion in my career so that I can enjoy what I do; and do it by heart. I have good leadership skills and aspire to connect with masses. I am a good listener and have dedication towards my career and my life.
