“A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform. After having worked for more than 15 years in the corporate sector I was at that point in life where I wanted to work for a more satisfying and meaningful cause and being a woman I know the importance of financial freedom. I am so glad that I can be a part of Women on Wings’ team that works so diligently for the cause of women empowerment and that I truly believe is one of the ways to reduce gender inequality that exist in our society. With my varied experience and knowledge of working with startups and the passion of working for a social cause I am confident of contributing positively towards the organization vision of creating sustainable income for the underprivileged women.”
