"Be the change you wish to see in the world." These words by Gandhi hold an in-depth meaning, which are beautifully justified by Barack Obama: "Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek."

What ignited your pursuit for gender equality?

The oppression from times unknown faced by the women, which isn't as vocal as it was earlier but is classified with hypocrisy, casual jingoism and sexism.

Please share your biggest wins as an advocate for gender equality.

In these critical times of COVID-19, I was involved with community work, preparing two daily meals for the daily wage workers, laborers, and the poor. I also distributed monthly ration kits with the basic food essentials and did brief content writing for an NGO.

Outside of your gender equality advocacy work, what do you enjoy doing?

Learning a new language.
