1. Please tell us about yourself, your passions and dreams.
My name is Richa Chauhan. I reside in Baroda. We have a small family of four, apart from me – my dear husband and two sons. I am passionate about everything that is a creative medium of expression. I love writing, speaking, acting and making videos. Recently I have been attracted towards zero waste lifestyle, though not easy but I am trying my best to make a difference.
