Candidate May 2021 Northgate & West Green
I have thirty-three years of experience in engaging with the local community in Crawley. This includes extensive knowledge of diversity issues and integration of community groups. I have diversely led across the local community with the Crawley Youth, Elderly and Disability groups. I am fluent in Hindi, Gujarati and understand Urdu and Punjabi.
Additionally, I have had a successful career in the aviation industry with Virgin Atlantic working across integral business sectors for twenty-one years. Having personally lost my job in this sector I understand the challenges we face in Crawley. This has an impact on mental health.
I am particularly passionate about wellbeing. As a qualified Yoga Teachers’ Trainer and Wellbeing Consultant I lead Yoga classes, meditation sessions, and public wellbeing workshops. I strongly believe in enabling people to empower themselves through conscious action. When you give your time through acts of service, there is a positive response. This is how I would lead as councillor for Northgate and West Green
I would now like to channel my energy into positive community service. As the Labour party has always been about people, I feel it matches my personal values. I would like to serve this community to support and uphold the voice of its people.
