Hello, my name is Ekta. I was born in small town of Nepal called Hetauda. I am a pharmacy student. In my free time, I enjoy watching movies, practicing photography, and exploring the villages.

WhenI was 10, and returning home from the school one day someone noticed my unusual rib hump and told my mother. We visited the local doctor where  was prescribed the brace which I wore for 3 years. My shoulders and pelvis were also uneven.

At about 13 years old after an MRI, the doctor prescribed surgery. Unfortunately, we were misguided and sent for surgery for my nerves and not my spine. My spine condition became worse and I finally had surgery with Dr. Oheneba Boachei-Adjei where he diagnosed congenital scoliosis.

Because my condition was rarely diagnosed and people here don’t know the term for this condition, I want to raise awareness for scoliosis. I want to relieve the physical and mental stress every girl has to go through due to scoliosis. I want to set an example that even after going through all this we

can achieve whatever we desire. I hope this support group is the most effective way to help all the warriors. Thank you Curvy Girls for this amazing opportunity!
