-“I had never had the opportunity to study or work with a group of people so closely as the women of eastern Uttar Pradesh. My boss, Dr. Dipti Singh, gave me phenomenal insight into women’s economic empowerment and development in the state and showed me the ins and outs of trying to make a significant impact in a society still plagued by poverty and gender inequality.”
