About Me

I am a Student at RMIT pursuing Masters in Design Innovation and Technology. I grew up watching casual sexism and oppression of women on a daily basis. But was fortunate enough to be born in a family where I was treated with the same respect and love (at least 95% of the time) . But it wasn't the same outside my home. I am sick and tired of the misogyny and people's casual sexism and how normalise it. And I choose to speak up. March against the misogyny. Fight to take back what is mine.
