Founder & Chief Operational Officer, Manastva
Because of being born and brought up in a place where people lack awareness, knowledge about science and psychology, lack of expertise in parenting skills and ignorance, I suffered physically with congenital heart disease and mentally with anxiety.
Even though my physical illness got cured at one point, I couldn't lead a normal life because of several reasons which includes lack of support from people and tough situations. My inability to handle social relations, career, hobbies and health made me search for cure for my mental illness. In search of solutions for my problems, I started moving closer to Psychology day by day and that transformed me into Psychologist. I started enjoying the process of witnessing transformations of my clients. I also believe in Science and have passion for learning Law. I believe in Justice, I hate keeping silence when there is injustice happening and that's what made me aspire to become Legal Activist.
