Before becoming a successful entrepreneur, Dilina worked at a garage and at a bus as a conductor. But he could not work more than one week in the garage. His mother warned the owner of the garage not to take him as a worker because he is too small to do hard work. So, Dilina did not receive any payment from his first job.
Meanwhile, Dilina applied for two job opportunities in two different shops but he got rejected from both shops due to his age. At that time, his age was a massive challenge for him. Now, Dilina is an owner of 8 luxury vehicle. In 2016, he bought a Toyota Prius when he was 17 years old. But Dilina wanted to buy a bus since he was a kid.

He was very upset with the decision of his family. He fought with his family and didn’t talk to his parents for a few weeks. But his parents didn’t change their decision.
