We ought to fight for those whose voices can't be heard, to strive for a global community where inequality is unheard of, and a society where we can live in harmony with one another.

What ignited your pursuit for gender equality?
The inability of the authorities to help when I was raped in my third year. First, they needed me to pay them to their job of arresting the person that had done that to me, and second, they alleged that I had brought it upon myself. As I sat there, I wondered how many more women's plight goes unheard.
Please share your biggest wins as an advocate for gender equality.
I created a platform where both girls and women can share freely about what they are going through and collectively create solutions to these problems. I started on the paperwork to formalize this platform into an NGO when were put under lockdown due to COVID-19.
Outside of your gender equality advocacy work, what do you enjoy doing?
Traveling, eating, and learning news ways to better myself and those around me.
