About Me: 

A devoted wife, mother and grand mother, seeing a world of change all around me, I am excited to join the community with similar interests. As a South Asian woman who had a very supportive father I was able to complete my University education, a Bachelor's degree in Arts. It was after marriage that I have been successful in completing my post graduate studies. This was also as a result of having an understanding and supportive husband. So two men in my life have contributed to my success and achievements. This has been a rather rare situation for a woman from South Asia.I mothered 3 sons and a daughter and now I am a grandmother of twin boys.I enjoy working with rural women and teaching/training.

My Passions: 
Uplift the lives of the disadvantaged women and children
My Challenges: 
Work towrds eradicating gender based violence in Sri Lanka
My Vision for the Future: 
A safe and peaceful world
My Areas of Expertise: 
Trainer, writer, researcher
My Languages: 
English, Sinhala
