Nisha Dahayat, chairperson of the Khamriya village council
“When I was young, a woman was elected chairperson of the village council. When I heard that, I immediately knew: one day I want to be elected too. She realised good things for us and it was my dream to change things for the better, too. And you know what? I did! I have learned to stand my ground, no matter what, and to take the initiative. Because if I want something to change, I have to create that myself.”
“Women can really make a difference worldwide, that is my vision. Becoming a member of Odisha’s 100 felt like the logical next step for me and my company FITSHE. With the FITSHE team we are very proud to have contributed to the change where we so firmly believe in.”
“One woman can make a difference, but together we can rock the world”
