When the ordinary is extraordinary the world improves. The feminine is pushing humanity forward. We are witnessing historical moments in which women have, increasingly, an outstanding role. Anonymous or famous, whether they appear in the media or not, women are making a difference.
It is a reality that the 2012 Summer Olympics were the Games of Women. For the first time in Olympic history, all delegations had female athletes in their teams -a total of 4,850 athletes, which account for 46% of the participants. A percentage that is a close enough reflection of the 7 billion people that inhabit the planet, of which roughly half are men and half are women. 116 years later. Better late than never. The good news is that the trend was consolidated in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. And in the Spanish team, women won more medals than men.
“Real change happens when we invest in girls. Every year, millions of girls are denied an education at a time when it has the power to transform their lives and the world around them. If a girl is able to make it through primary and secondary education, it can help them break the cycle of poverty and it can help put a stop to early and forced marriage.
So, here i am going to introduce you to a Soul Who is Inspiring Society and spreading awareness and positivity among all .She is The Person who is supporting those who are being demoralise by society.
I really feel Proud and Insipred after Meeting A Pure Soul who proved in DUSU elections by contesting against all the 4 Male candidates that Women’s are effective and women can do Anything.

◆ Who has helped you to get where you are today?
• My family, who helped me at every point and situation to be the one who I am today. They encouraged me to find my own person and own independence.
ABVP, an organization which has given me an identity and opportunity to contest and be the part of Delhi University Students’ Union.
◆How did you learn to embrace failures?
•Failure is an inevitable part of life. Sometimes we learn from our mistakes, and sometimes we just don’t know what went wrong. I have stopped seeing failure as a measure of my self worth.While I may not be good at one thing, that doesn’t mean that I am bad at everything.
◆It is said that, ” If we educate a man, we educate a man only, but if we educate a woman we educate the whole nation.” Share your views on this.
• Yes it is rightly said because with her education, not only she will be benefited, she will spread the light of education all around her. She will teach her brothers, sisters, neighbors, and other adults.
Women can never see her children go uneducated. She will be most insistent upon sending her children to school be it even at the cost of her hobbies, interests or even stomach. This is because she appreciates the importance of education. So with an educated mother, we ‘can safely assume that we have most effective motivator for the spread of education.
“Girls are the future mothers of any society. Every girl that receives an education is more likely to make education a priority for her children. It’s a ripple effect of positive change in the community and country.”
◆ What’s your superpower and in what way would you best use it?
• My superpower is that I am able to be calm and positive even in the face of adversity.
It helps me in taking right decisions in my life.
◆ According to you, what hinders the active participation of girls in education sector even after such development?
• Every day, girls face barriers to education caused by poverty, cultural norms and practices, poor infrastructure, violence and fragility.
Girls’ education goes beyond getting girls into school. It is also about ensuring that girls learn and feel safe while in school.
◆ What’s the most important lesson you have learned and how it has changed you life?
•I learned that people don’t care about you. And I also understood that I had to get used to this fact. I would always think that people care. And to be honest, some people might including your family and very close friends. But many times people whom we thought would care; wouldn’t. So understand such people and don’t invest your time in them. Invest in yourself and everything else will fall in line.
◆ Even today women are looked down at and do not get equality in certain platforms… Do you think it’s the sickness of the society?
•There is still a long way to go to achieve full equality of rights and opportunities between men and women.It is essential to achieve equal opportunities in access to employment and to positions of leadership and decision-making at all levels.
●Women are not effective leaders is often what we hear. But you proved yourself by being a perfect example to- leadership is not mere a function of the gender of an individual rather the competencies and qualities that he/ she possess. Would you like to say something?
• To all those who thinks this, they should see all of those women leaders who are setting examples in the politics whether it’s Smriti Irani in lok sabha elections or Nirmala Sitaraman. I myself proved in DUSU elections by contesting against all the 4 Male candidates that Women’s are effective.
We always talk about women empowerment, this is what an empowered women is. It’s not the matter of gender , it’s about virtuosity.
◆According to you what is the practical way to heal the sick mentality of people?
•If you want other
people to change, start with yourself and make sure the things you want them to change about themselves are things you do effectively yourself.
◆ What advice would you like to give to the upcoming youth to be good leaders?
•Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate, and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand.
And use power to drive Change.
◆Would to like to adress something to girls?
• Be that strong girl that everyone knew would make it through the worst. Be that fearless girl the one would dare to do anything. Be that independent girl, who doesn’t need a man. Be that girl who never backed down.
The future is waiting for women to take on any leadership role where they feel they can contribute to society. The world as we know it is changing, and now is the time to evolve a new generation with higher expectations of what women can do. The critical challenge here is for women to believe in themselves and encourage other women to do so, as well.
Without women, the world has no future. It’s an obvious sentence that needs to be repeated.
