When I was
nearly 3 years old, I was sleeping with my mum Geeta and my baby sister Krishna, when my father poured acid on us.

The reason
my father gave for the attack was because he was getting “one girl, then another girl, then another... and
no boy”

After the attack my mum was told I'd be better off dead, but she refused to listen

In 2014,
my mum and I
and three other acid attack survivors opened SHEROES Hangout cafe (with Stop Acid Attacks and the Chhanv Foundation). The cafe was created, so acid attack survivors can earn a living and  promote social
change.

We went
on TV, took to
the streets and told the government that what had happened
to us was
wrong

I believe
change comes from changing our thinking. This is why I've joined 'The Wake Up Campaign'

If we
understand
what is gender bias and what creates violence against women and girls, then we are able to lead change

My mum
encourages
me to follow my dreams, despite many people thinking
I'm just a girl and
shouldn't reach
too high
