It was a wonderful experience to work as a content curator as a part of the Stranger Sapiens community. During the course of my work, I gained a lot of insights about a variety of topics, like, philosophy, psychology etc. In addition to this, Pranshu also exposed the entire team to great content creators online and amazing sources of information. Weekly exchange of feedback also helped in nourishing the work culture since it made both sides of the team comfortable and clear about how things were going and what could be improved. Apart from professional skills, SS also connected me to like minded people who I am still in touch with.

I joined SS an an apprentice in October 2020 since then I have been a part of both the team and the power batch 1 . As a curator , I worked on the skills of searching , selecting , organising and adding value to the information relevant to the courses. It's been wonderful to be a part of team which strives towards improvement consistently . With regular feedbacks from chief curator Pranshu agarwal , I was able to learn this skill without any prior knowledge.

I really wanna thank Stranger Sapiens for giving me this opportunity. I joined here as an apprentice with no previous experience in the editing space and just wanted to learn as time progressed. Pranshu has been so helpful, patient and so accomodating from Day 1. He has had no problem in putting me first. Whether I made any mistake or did some unintentional blunders, he never went mad but always was supportive. Sam also played a crucial role in my journey at Stranger Sapiens by giving me the opportunity to edit his work - Growth Engine Handbook and also is a gem of a person to work with. I really thank Pranshu and Sam for getting me to this level and would lifelong be indebted to them.

Things I liked were the dedication and commitment of the team, proper structure of the format as to how to build & always exploring and brainstorming to different things. Things learnt during this apprenticeship were building a brand from ground level, time management & Performing all the functions- marketing, distribution, research and networking. On a scale of 1-10, I would rate it as 10/10 :) :)

I joined SS with immense interest in designing and not someone who's best at it. During this period, I have read, learnt, and understood so much about this field through the various books (Information is Beautiful by David McCandless being my absolute favorite), courses plus the regular and critical/insightful feedback Sam and Pranshu bestowed upon us. Working for SS was more like training and developing myself in designing than just aligning two or three vector shapes side by side and making a template out of it (yeah, it's a design thing :P). I am grateful for all the experience and memories that SS has given me and the all-nighters that we pulled . Undoubtedly, everyone here is indeed a StrangerSapien ;-)

Coming from a different career background, this place gave me the chance to explore the skills which I was a complete beginner at. Apart from exploring my skills and becoming good at it, I find myself fortunate that I got a chance to meet different people with great vision. Sam has always been a great mentor who helped me to see my strengths and weaknesses at every path of my journey. Working with Pranshu was great too, I got a chance to learn different sound techniques and executing it with perfection from him. Plus we get the perks of community's sessions/workshops to set up our personal/professional development goals.
