Moscow Marathon

I love running long distances. I started running to overcome frustration and anger associated with social pressures of being a woman and expectations of society. I was always an outlier, I knew I hated conformity-anything and everything that constricts, depletes or erodes one’s personal power is harmful for the soul.

I fought my battles on my own, and I found relief in running. It was my outlet and my way of breaking stereotypes.

Now, I run to create awareness about issues such as women empowerment and gender development in developing countries.
