First Lady Arya Ali Meets Swara Patel of India in Manchester

On the sidelines of the One Young World Youth Summit in Manchester, I was fortunate to meet Swara Patel, a young activist from India who has been championing sexual and reproductive health in many parts of the world. As founder and President of The Period Society, Swara has used her platform and knowledge to raise awareness about period poverty and advocate at a national level for it to be treated with the highest level of priority. It is why she was the winner of the 2021 Diana Award, and served as a Global Teen Youth Leader that same year. It was both informative and inspiring to listen to the work she has been doing across the world, even as I shared the Guyana experience which was not unfamiliar to her
