“As a student who is passionate about pursuing a career at the intersection of public health, gender and development, I was excited to work with HER Pakistan. My time here not only encouraged me to unlearn many of the ways in which we unconsciously stigmatize menstruation, but also allowed me to use my voice to increase awareness and fight the menstrual taboo. Moving forward, I hope to continue to understand, and ultimately change, the social and economic conditions that enable health inequity in Pakistan.”
