When she was 20, She met two street young girls in Istanbul, who changed her life. She decided to work for street and working children.

She established the Bornfree Art School for street kids in Bangalore, India and worked with them for 11 years.

She often encountered the situations where these children were psychologically suffering even after their performances wowed the audience.


This experience led her to explore therapeutic aspects of arts.
