I've had a long and varied journey. From completing my studies and Commercial Pilot training in Arizona, pursuing modeling in Mumbai, all the way to my life's calling "Streedhan"
Even though, I began exploring philanthropy at an early age, with the opportunity to work in association with RISCAI for a Rural development project via Skill development. A project that earned me the honor of being awarded “High Achieving Woman” by the Maharashtra dept of vocational training in 2012. However, it was my creative pursuits that led me to find my true path.
After Writing & Directing various Ads & Short Films, launching a content development company Junip Entertainment Pvt Ltd. I realized, that my journey was taking me on a completely different path. Even-though my entertainment projects usually incorporated, not too subtle, references to philosophies of women empowerment, it wasn't enough for me. I felt the need to do more in order to truly make a difference. Hence I began blogging and freelance writing with platforms like Feminism India, Youth Ki Awaaz, The Quint blog, India Today, etc.
Every time I would write, my words put my path into perspective. I realized, what I truly needed to do. It was to reach out to my sisters. Those, who didn't have the privilege to access information or education, that has been freely and easily available to me. This realization led to the creation of the 'Streedhan Association of Women's Development'.
Through educative intervention and digital advocacy, we are striving for a much needed cultural reform in India.
