As a young girl in India, I loved playing football with the local boys. People often scolded me and told me I would grow up to be a loose woman because of that! I didn’t by the way: I am happily married with two children! But I was not afraid of breaking down gender stereotypes for equal opportunity. And today when we cheer for our ‘Lionesses’, I feel happy and proud to be a woman.
I graduated from Delhi University in History and there I got my first taste of politics as a youth activist. While I was volunteering and teaching disadvantaged children in India, I was learning the meaning of community service. This flame continues to burn inside me and has brought me into local politics at home in Hampton North.
After graduation, I came to the UK with just one suitcase but a big bag of dreams. I completed my MBA at the University of Strathclyde and also earned a Diploma in Business Studies from London Business School. Then I worked in various multi-national corporations in the aviation and oil industry where I held multiple senior operational roles. With my work experience, I harnessed my leadership skills and then started multiple businesses. Now I run a successful hospitality company and an aviation consultancy firm. Britain gives the opportunity to migrants to fulfil their dreams, and my success story can be shared with our empowering community and young people. It’s a story of Hope!!
I was not born in a traditional Conservative family. I chose to be one based on my life’s experiences because the Conservative Party fuels aspirations and values diversity and inclusion. Now I am eagerly waiting for you to believe in me and I will be honoured to proudly represent YOU!!
