About Me

I am an Educator/Mentor for 20+ years and hold three Masters degrees - a dual Masters degrees from Institute of Education, University College London and a Masters in Psychology from University of Mumbai. It took me a very long time to become aware of my rights as a woman or human. I am working towards reclaiming them which I know is not going to be an easy journey for me. Yet, I am determined to take back what is rightfully mine. At the same time, I would like to contribute in whatever way possible to educate women about their strengths and potential which they choose to forget so easily for various reasons. I have adopted a motto for myself - From "WhyMe" to "WowMe!".
