During the lockdown, I did many things through my NGO to help people like distributing food kits, arranging blood donation camps and arranging oxygen concentration etc. Talking about my Art, my love for art was from small age, since my school days I loved painting, sketching and art & craft. I have won many painting as well as handwriting competition. My message for youth is that “ Raise your head high and leave all the fear of mind behind. Never step back when the storm comes, instead face it with the full courage”, she said.
