Social Activism

She is a social activist and often speaks about creating mental health awareness and a child-friendly education system after her experience with epilepsy and anxiety attacks at a very young age. In an interview, she said,

Anyone can be suffering from some mental breakdown or issues, but what we see on the face is very deceiving, so when someone opens up, please don’t shoo them away, saying they are lying and faking for attention. In the future, as a child who survived school bullying, I must say bullying doesn’t just come from classmates and colleagues; it can also come from teachers; after I got my anxiety attacks, It was traced back to how I was being treated in class. Thus, my ultimate aim or plan for the future is to encourage child-friendly education without the discrimination of any gender identity.”

She is a supporter of “Ketto India,” Asia’s crowdfunding platform for charitable causes and Child Help Foundation.
