She has been empowering the underprivileged and disadvantaged to become self-sufficient in life. She believes in Equality in terms of resources, gender, privileges, age, caste, race etc. and is highly against any kind of discrimination. She believes, before anything else, people must learn how to be empathetic and in her opinion, it should be taught right from the beginning, in the schools to children so that they learn how to respect each other’s point of views and accept each other with their flaws.
Being a psychologist, she has the ability to assess situations, difficulties, risks, behaviour and emotional problems, and give counselling on the basis of her assessments. She has been working with children, adolescents and adults and therefore she understands where they are coming from, the amount of care, understanding, encouragement and empathy they need to move ahead in life.
