Organizer of Nrithya - An Online Dance WorkshopUrja means “energy, strength or vigor” in Sanskrit and we @Urja believe that women are already born with this energy to achieve the impossible. But sometimes integrating into a new country or new job or adjusting to the new changes in life might sometimes diminish our potential and we feel lost. Urja is a non-profit volunteer meet-up group that will provide a platform for women to express freely without being judged and to reignite the Urja within them.
