Teaching is a very noble profession. She firmly believes that not everyone possesses the quality to become a teacher or a mentor to another person. She comes from a background of social science, and pursued Political Science (Hons) from the University of Delhi after passing out from school, after which she also pursued three years of Bachelor in Law from Amity University, Noida. However, at the time she was intrigued by the Social Sector and Teaching as a profession. Hence, to corroborate her interest she pursued Masters in Law with specialization in Human Rights.
To pursue this interest of hers she decided to gain some practical knowledge in both the fields, she did various internship programmes in the summer breaks. Few of her internships have been in a Top TV News Channel of India, where she worked as part of the team which carried out research for the Chief Editor’s Political Talk Show. She got her second break in the social sector work is where she worked as a volunteer with Literacy India, NGO which provides education to the less privileged children of the society. Here, she was keenly associated with teaching the children and her focus was the girl child, who is the most neglected person in the Indian rural society. This internship presented a good opportunity for her to understand the exploitation of children and the laws that protect children and the Rights of a Child. Post this experience she realized that she enjoyed teaching and since then have been involved with “Each One- Teach One” program where she has been teaching the children of domestic helps and labour who work in our society regularly. In her first year in Law College she got an opportunity to be a legal intern at the Armed Forces Tribunal where she assisted the Learned Counsel in research for cases pertaining to the armed forces personnel’s who were wronged in their careers and were seeking legal help. Her role here was to do the research on the old Tribunal Cases, similar cases in foreign armies, their judgments and relevance in Indian Legal Defence system. Finally, she got an opportunity to intern with the National Human Rights Commission of India (NHRC). In this role, she carried out a rigorous study and research on human rights issues in India and other developing nations. She made a presentation on the Anti-Discrimination and Equality Bill of 2016 that was being debated in the Indian Parliament. Her experience here convinced her that Human Rights Field was her calling. In her last internship she got the opportunity to work with Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative as a legal researcher under Mrs. Maja Daruwala here she got to understand the ground level of the work and the practicality of the work of Human Rights. Working at Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative motivated her more and make herself capable by pursing a degree in Human Rights and become a specialist in the field.
