Meet A Personality

Everybody, Meet Thanash Uthaya Kumar

I did learn how to hack and no, I am not gonna do it for you!

He’s from the Land of Satay, and yes, by that we meant Kajang, Malaysia – Google it up. His interest in entrepreneurship and knack for taking risks has made him who he is today. Extroverted Introvert? Well, let’s find out what that is, shall we? Meet Thanash.  

What are you up to lately?

#Stayathome, but being productive enough with my cup of tea – it’s chamomile with lemongrass by the way. Jokes aside, I am currently in the midst of a couple of projects that require completion and am going to launch my latest project venture.

Tell us a bit about yourself.

Well, I was born in Kajang, went to SMK Taman Jasmin 2, in Kajang and studied Diploma in ICT from Asia Pacific University as well as recently as of February 2020, I have a Degree in Cyber Security from Asia Pacific University & Staffordshire University. And yes, I did learn how to hack and no, I am not gonna do it for you. Hahaha!

I have always had an interest in pursuing entrepreneurship as well as my passion for helping some have allowed me to learn the art of value proposition and the art of adding value. Through that, I actively hunted for opportunities with some failed ventures. I then decided to work in a call center right after my Diploma in 2017 and yes, I was doing sales. That’s when I found that I wanted to take the full risk and go in again into entrepreneurship and I have never looked back. Being a student entrepreneur allowed me to gain insights and knowledge that was limitless. Yes, that was when I learned how to hack, but still, I won’t do it as I am in the process of being certified.

Aside from that, I like bright colors like yellow, red, & blue. I swim when I need to relax as the water calms my nerves and I’m a huge nerd when it comes to podcasts, and yes I have slept while listening to one.

Where are you now?

In my room, hahah. Well I am from the land of the Satay King which is Kajang. #43000

Your zodiac?

I have an interesting answer, as I was born on October 30, I am a Scorpio based on the English dates but according to Hindu, I am a Libra, so I am the best of both worlds, I guess it just allows me to be freer and open.
