Lifting up seemingly everyday people with audacious dreams
I believe that we are all connected to each other, and that we all hold a moral and human responsibility to each other. I believe education is the most powerful tool in empowering communities to break through the constraints that are holding them back, allowing individuals to envision a new future in which each has the opportunity to thrive in a dignified life. I believe in giving back and reaching out, and that there is richness in diversity. I am an advocate, a bridge-builder and a connector. I belong to a global network of passionate agents of change and feel privileged to be a link in the chain of positive global transformation.
I proudly serve on the board of a variety of organizations and non-profits:
- Santa Clara University, Santa Clara, USA
- Destiny Reflection, Kolkata, India
- Amici Lovanienses, San Francisco, USA
I am a graduate of the 2012 Women Leaders for the World program, hosted by Global Women’s Leadership Network at Santa Clara University.
