Shweta Katti – A Remarkable Journey
Born in one of Mumbai’s biggest red-light districts, Kamathipura, Shweta grew up in an environment where abuse and confinement of women was common. She went to a Marathi Municipal school where her friends called her cow-dung and black bamboo which affected her self-esteem. She was sexually abused by men and blamed herself for it. Despite all setbacks, she still garnered the courage to dream big and pursue higher education in America. With her determination, she secured admission to New York’s Brad College in 2013 on scholarship.
