Who am I really?
As I said at IGF last month, most of us usually wear multiple hats. I may be the President of P@SHA but I am also part of civil society, I am also a woman, I am a blogger, I am a citizen of a country and an inhabitant of the world. Each of these parts of me reacts differently to different situations. I should therefore not be coloured with any particular brush because I am a multitude of interesting colours like any other person.
For example, when I view the issue of privacy I look at it as a woman, as a civil rights activist, as a business person and as an individual who is involved with an industry that needs to address the issue of privacy in the tools and applications that we create. I also look at the whole issue of privacy from an advocacy perspective because I believe many people do not even think about the privacy angle until they become a target of privacy invasion or a victim of online harrassment or cyberstalking. Governments too need to be monitored so they do not come up with policies under the guise of security that infringe on our privacy. So I look at privacy from varying perspectives.
Anyway, the point I wanted to make is: Don’t look at me through a single lens because you will only see one side of me, and you will miss out the many other facets of who I am.
