Safecity Emerging Leader: Rahat Sharma
My name is Rahat Sharma and I am a Law student with an inclination to work towards Human Rights in the future. My beautiful journey with Safecity started about 3 months ago while searching for a platform wherein I could contribute to society and come closer to the concealed reality of this world. Working with Safecity has been enriching as I have transformed from being a guarded girl to a fearless individual. Not only have I understood myself so deeply but also had the opportunity to understand the society and the nuances associated with the same. I am extremely grateful to be a part of a team which has a vision and a mission to #BreakTheSilence and make a difference.
As a Blogging intern, I have the privilege to voice my opinion and enable the ignorant as well as the wise to be the change they wish to see. All this wouldn’t have been possible had I not been provided with such a platform by Safecity.
As a Volunteer with Safecity, I have the chance to work alongside the ever-so inspiring Aarushee Shukla and her Campus Volunteers. Conducting sessions in Delhi University on different events like International Women’s Day or spreading awareness through innovative and contemporary campaigns on Sexual Harassment during the International Anti Sexual Harassment Week or having profound discussions with the volunteers and so much more has definitely added to my experience, but way more to my awareness.
I truly believe that Safecity has played a vital role in helping me value my limitless potential by believing in me and through constructive feedback have helped me utilise that same potential. This is just the beginning of my journey to fulfil my new found resolve of having a safer and a value creating world. This could materialize only due to the efforts and hard work of the iconic backbone of Safecity, Ms. Elsa D’Silva.
Thank You, Elsa and Team, for making Safecity a home away from home for me.
