Why did you join Gravity?

"I've never been an avid user of social media, somewhat due to the problems that arose from it, but also because I wanted to focus on my in-person interactions and experiences. Social platforms have evolved into a valuable tool in today's day, leveraging communication and connection with millions across the world, but there's a lot to be done around the existing culture. I joined Gravity to make a positive impact on that culture and make social media a better place for everyone."
