What Are You Most Passionate About?

I am passionate about teaching, training and counseling girls and women in rural areas about health issues.

Classical music

What project would a laptop help you with? Give a short description.

I’m currently working in Uttar Pradesh, India, in a community mobilization project. A laptop would help me create reports, present data, and work towards my core task of counselling rural women in health issues. Soon, I want to study further in public health, and a laptop would be a big help.

What do you love about this project?

It’s heartening to see women changing their behavior, attitudes, and beliefs, and breaking health myths by gaining new knowledge.

What Languages do you speak?

Hindi & English

Given a choice, would you prefer a Mac or PC?
