The Indian society attaches many myths and taboos to menstruation in women, which undermines the role of a women in the society as an equal. As part of WOW I hope educate young girls and boys regarding menstruation and do away with the myths and taboos surrounding it .
A Computer Graduate by education currently works as an Image Consultant where I help my clients create their Presence in their everyday life or while taking on any challenges so that they can operate from their highest self-awareness and put their confident selves forward.
Having struggled with my period issues, I know personally the challenges girls face when it comes to periods, the pain not only physical but also psychological can be daunting, combine with it all the taboos the society attaches, it can be frustrating and in the long run affect a young girls confidence.
Educating people about periods, more so breaking myths and taboos that surround them is a way to undo these issues, and that’s where my association with WOW comes in, I am happy to be associated with such a dedicated team of people working towards this cause and doing my part in spreading awareness.
