Words to live by? Before enlightenment, one must wash the dishes. After enlightenment, one must wash the dishes. Best piece of advice given to you by a woman? You belong in this room, so suck your tummy in, tilt your pelvis forward and speak your mind. How did you celebrate your 21st? My friends organised a surprise party for me at a friend’s home.

It was my first surprise party and my second birthday party ever! What did your 21st mean to you? I felt very held and appreciated by my friends. It felt like an incredibly warm hug… What was the most exciting part? Seeing all my chinas with all their smiling faces; getting over my confusion and letting my tears flow.
Do you think women are better off now than they were 21 years ago, socially and economically? It’s a complicated question with a complicated answer.
I think in general they probably are, but our society is still so incredibly unequal that what is true in one corner can be absolutely false for another. I think it will, unfortunately, be this way for a long time to come; the wounds of our past run very deep. The most fun thing you’ve done since your 21st is… Sky diving! I never imagined I would enjoy that kind of thing but it’s unlocked the hidden adrenaline junkie in me! Love it.
