A QuickCommunity is a client commissioned

our Influencers will be invited to join and have
discussions about a certain subject, with other
Influencers or a researcher from our client. It is
a new and fun way to voice your opinion at
Toluna and influence your world!
How do I join?
There will be a short survey in the “Survey
Centre” section of Toluna.com. Those who
complete this short survey and whose profiles
match with what the client is looking for, will
be able to join the QuickCommunity. A new
section called “Events” will appear in your
account on Toluna.com, and you can select the
QuickCommunity chatroom to enter. Please be
sure to log in to the website instead of the
Toluna mobile app.
What do I do inside & will I get points?
Once you are inside the chatroom, you will see
1 or more “Topics” on the top left-hand corner.
You can select the topic you want to
participate in, then simply provide your opinion
on the topic and join the live discussion!

I am learning to play guitar since before lockdown and
I am still learning. We i.e, I, my sister, and my mother
prepared pani puris one day which was too good. I
have learned to crochet and I have made my first
crochet motif. I have designed a pretty dress and I
have also made cloth masks. I had made a sketch few
days ago which is my all-time favorite activity.
As this much is not enough for me. I am also learning
something from digital learning platforms such as
Udemy and Edx. To stay fit I walk on the roof. I am not
a passionate cook and I don't even have a big
appetite. But I am looking forward to learning to cook.
I also put my energy in keeping my house clean.

Unknowingly I have done many good things starting
from attempting yummy dishes, to painting, to
exercising, to singing, to dancing, to playing indoor

T A N M A Y _ A N N E
1.ENJOYMENT: Being a medical student, I don't have much time to enjoy, so I sat down and completed
all my pending series and I'm happy about it.
2.YOGA: I had an injury 2 years back and I had to take bed-rest for 3 months, my parents told me to
not play games again because of my injury and hence my volleyball skills went to the attic. After I
joined MBBS I started yoga and my health got better. So during this lock-down time, I focused on
improving my body and now I am in intermediate level in yoga, though I can't do the hand stands and
head stands, my spine is once again flexible and I think I will be able to play volleyball again this year.
3.HOUSEHOLD SKILLS: Like most of the girls, I don't know much about taking care of the household
matters. I do take care of my own needs and requirements, these holidays I learnt a lot of cooking,
cleaning the house and also enjoyed doing all that
4.BOOKS: I am a fan of reading good books, in fact I have a collection of around 20-30 books some
of them are novels and the rest are personal development. In this lock-down I had the time to read
some new books I bought few months back and I had made many changes to my thinking and lifestyle.
Books influence our lives and I recommend everyone to read more books.
5.RECONNECT WITH FRIENDS: I lost contact with many of my school friends, be it busy life or just petty
fights.This indoor time made me think deep and helped me reconnect with all my long lost friends and
it gave a warmth in my heart.
6.LIFE PURPOSE: These times made me think deep, question my existence and also have a internal
debate about many things and resolve every issue. Now I am ready with my personal goals. Whatever I
do the end goal is to serve humanity and as a medical professional I have the opportunity to do it in
the front line. I am so happy that I made this choice of joining MBBS.
7.INFLUENCE THE WORLD: I joined Toluna basically for the rewards, but as I took each survey I
realized that my opinions did matter and are being taken into consideration. I have never took any
survey lightly, because my opinion makes a change. This lock-down period, I attended more surveys
and I am happy about it. I also was able to follow the Toluna community and what people shared, its
nice to be in this community and also change the world at the same time.
