Paras Thakur (transwoman) from Malad Malwani become first transwoman to join International bank today in admin section because of efforts by Sodexo (hiring firm) samjota Foundation and TWEET Foundation

Today she gathers her dream to start new career. Paras is undergraduate left education in between due to bullying in college due to her transition as transwoman. Paras later went through her surgery and surviving on begging for long time. She is one of the lead dancer of Dancing Queens since last 7 years. She always was unhappy begging in trains and her mother always had huge hope for her to live life with dignity.

It’s been last two years she was giving several interviews for work but lack of experience and incomplete education was a huge barrier for her to get the job. Millions of transgender people get affected due to lack of opportunities.

Thanks to all the team from @samjhotafoundation and Shreya from Sodexo

We are proud and wish best of the future for paras today as she join Bank of America and become their first out and open transgender employee in Bandra Kurla Complex Mumbai.

Best wishes paras you make us proud 👍💐🤞🤗😘💐💐💐🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹
