"I knew very early on that I wanted to make the kind of difference to someone's life that my own doctors had made to mine. As I went through medical school I realised I enjoyed paediatrics, working with children and their families and advocating for their health! "
She is a medical advisor for the popular ITV show Maternal and it was SO important to her that people understood what a mental load mothers carry!
She is also an ambassador for Smile Train - a cleft based charity because its important for her to normalise that south asian beauty standards are unrealistic and we are ALL beautiful.
"I was first introduced to WUKA when moaning about my periods on a cold december evening. Despite being a Doctor it has taken me 30yrs to understand and know my body and periods. Periods, virginity, marital intimacy are all such TABOO topics. Parents dont teach their girls about hormones and periods and how to have healthy periods and I hope by working with WUKA I can normalise that journey. The best gift any parent can give their Daughter is an understanding of her body and how to go with the flow (quite literally)!".
