It was her dream to serve the nation and society. Since her college days, she wanted to pursue something that could help in uplifting the Rural India. With this vision, she came with the thought of establishing Sashakt Gram. In the early phase of her career, she started working with UNESCO, when her first assignment was at Sri Har-Gobindpur Sahib (District Gurdaspur), Punjab. Where she worked for the betterment of drop out kids of financially disadvantaged women. While working with them she realized the pain and struggle of such underprivileged women, who wanted to send their kids to school. Thereafter she took the decision to work for destitute in future.
In addition to this, she holds an experience of working with different media organizations for about 15 years. But her work and interest always revolved around social issues. And now after 15 years, she took the decision to take a break and embark on a new journey.
