Prerna Avasthi is a published poet and social Influencer. She's been writing poetry of impact and working on issues like menstrual hygiene, mental health, slow fashion.
I always wanted to express my thoughts on issues such as women empowerment, menstrual hygiene, and mental health. Not knowing how and where to properly express them, I started a small page where I used to pen down my thoughts and post them.
I never paid any attention to the following, because me being able to write them was enough for me. Amid all this writing, I somehow got into social work. I believed that it was high time, I stood up and did something about the issues I talked about.
As my page grew, new opportunities started coming my way and I was invited to speak on various platforms such as Canvas Literature Club and Social House. I decided to use my voice to make a change.
I decided to use my voice to talk about women’s issues and did a campaign called ‘Donate a Pad’, 'Coconut aaka', 'Green Summit' I wanted to do more for society and when people started approaching me for social and environment-related issues, I could not say no.
That was just the beginning and I eventually got into other social and environment-related work. Now, I can proudly call myself a social activist, an environmentalist, slow fashionista and a writer.
I am currently working on my new initiative, which is a platform we started to promote brands that are sustainable and small businesses. These brands encourage slow fashion and Upcycling. Through this initiative we are towards the motive of greener planet.
People often mix fashion with buying new clothes. Slow fashion is about reusing, customising and buying less.
Using second hand is of no Shame.
