More about me 

Outside of work, I love supporting educational initiatives for climate action. I started and now support a grassroots social impact organization, Designing Futures (School of Active Citizenship), aimed at building climate literacy among young changemakers and assisting them in establishing careers in sustainability across various sectors. My favorite subject to teach is collaborative negotiation. 

Additionally, I advise MSMEs in slow fashion on building their impact and implementation strategy for creating responsible supply chains. 

Lesser-known fact about me – I used to design board games. 

Why forests are important to me 

I lived my early years amist nature in remote regions of North East India, surrounded by forests, rivers, and rich biodiversity. Even while living in cities, I have always felt a strong connection to nature. For me, forests represent wisdom and peace—a sanctuary where individuals can lose themselves and yet discover a deeper understanding of themselves. 

Why Canopy   

Canopy’s theory of change and approach to climate action involves building scalable high impact solutions with a focus on the reality of escalating climate crisis. I admire that Canopy finds creative solutions and works collaboratively with stakeholders across the industry. I want to contribute to scaling those solutions and creating tangible change in the industry.
