Osheen Dayal

I am Osheen (Shweta) Dayal, a Psychology and Gender and Women’s Studies major student. I love gardening, yoga, and music. Being a brown woman and having worked in male-dominated workplaces, I have faced numerous instances of racism and sexism from a very young age.

During this pandemic quarantine period, I started Heartbound2020, a social media platform for women to share their stories of sexual and physical assault anonymously. The idea was to share stories, thereby unloading mental baggage. I also teach Interior Design to women acid attack survivors on Chhanv Foundation, an NGO based in India. I would love to get connected with people who strive for equality without gender conformity.
