Health Advocate cum Peer Counselor
I am a diligent development economics graduate passionate about building an egalitarian society which has provision to quality education and healthcare facilities for all those in need. My past work experience has exposed me to understand the intersectional nature of societies formed because of their unique socio-political-economic backgrounds. Thus, while trying to understand the complex nature of societies, my interest area has ranged from ethnography, socio-political ideologies, women and child healthcare, gender roles to government policies and health insurance.
Being a public health student, I was intrigued to work in the area of Non-communicable diseases, especially after I realized that such a huge percentage of them were of preventable nature. I have since been determined to bring about that lifestyle change which will help us become a healthier society. Joining hands with Nada gave me the right opportunity to put my skills to use. I started making training modules, giving sessions, planning, learning. I did not stop to even realize when I seamlessly settled in, got things done at the right time, without self-doubt and ended up being a master of my own time management, as I was attending my regular online classes too in the midst of all this.
As a peer leader, I had so many responsibilities that helped me learn a lot. My multicultural team has taught many aspects of communication and has boosted my confidence extremely. After the current pandemic, I realized that primordial prevention is the key to prevent any disease and I started to focus on the NCDs and Covid-19. I have since been determined to bring about that lifestyle and behavioral change which will help us create a healthier and happier society.
