She is also a country representative for Healthcare Information for All, part of the SDG 3 working group for the United Nations Major Group for Children and Youth, a country correspondent for YourCommonwealth, a communications team correspondent for the Global Healthcare Workforce Network, and a country correspondent for IHP Global.

She was also the only youth speaker from India to shed light on the topic of ‘Gender Equity in the Healthcare Sector’ for the GHWN Youth Hub Online Conference hosted in December 2019. She has represented her country across several platforms in the past including being a youth representative from the UN MGCY at the Global Conference on Primary Healthcare held in Astana in 2018. In her work, she advocates for young people's health with a special focus on the rights of Persons with Disabilities. She wishes to pursue research in the field of neurosciences in the near future. As a young healthcare professional of physical medicine and rehabilitation, she has been able to provide health education to over 15 rural areas on topics of disability, menstrual health and stigma and gender-based violence. She was the first student in her university to initiate a foreign student exchange program after 10 years and has taken up various scientific research led initiatives such as founding the research newsletter and being the organizing head for her college national symposium in order for encouraging more students to get interested in research at the ground level. She is currently co-leading on kickstarting a national level campaign on maternal mental health along with two other friends after observing several mothers go through postpartum depression during her clinical rotations throughout medical college.
