I have also published academically, on the internet, in news media (i.e. Pipalbot, Nepalese community newspaper) for popular press and other. I currently blog on issues for women in Nepal for Asha Nepal, a UK charity and Non-Government Organisation (NGO) based in Nepal, who work with women who have been sexually abused and trafficked for sexual exploitation.  In 2020, I was interviewed by Deakin University’s Disruptr team for International Women’s Day on progress beyond my PhD research in Nepal, ‘International Women’s Day – celebrating women in research’ and also in my previously held role of managing the day-to-day running of Deakin University’s theatre-based education programs, ‘Theatre-based education programs for public health’. This follows numerous interviews by Deakin Invenio and Navigator teams during my PhD journey.
