Safecity is celebrating the journey of people who have emerged as leaders as our campaigns progressed in their communities through our blog series “Safecity Emerging Leaders“. Read the inspiring stories of these individuals who are passionate about making their neighbourhoods safer with Safecity and have taken action in their own special ways.
Soyra Gune is currently pursuing an undergraduate degree in economics from Azim Premji University. An intersectional feminist, Soyra enjoys teaching and debating with those around her about social issues that are close to her heart. She will seem like a determined and strong- willed young woman to you but half the time her head is in the clouds. Just ask her mother about the number of things she has absent-mindedly put into the fridge.
Safecity Emerging Leader : Soyra Gune
People tend to say this a lot but I am going to say it anyway: “I want to make the world a better place.” I want to help people who have been at the receiving end of oppression whether be it on the basis of their gender, race, caste or other parts of their identity which have led them to face discrimination. In light of this sort of inner mission, I am currently pursuing a B.A. in Economics from Azim Premji University. I am still not sure whether I will pursue a career in public service or academics (both very appealing). But I know whatever I do, I will always remain a social justice warrior at heart.
