Social activist-feminist, Ngurang Reena has been fighting against racism and discrimination faced by the minorities in India, mostly towards the people of the North-Eastern region.
“People aren’t born with racist ideas or attitudes,” says Reena, onstage at TEDxXIE 2019. “Racism is something that is learned or acquired.” In her eye-opening talk, Reena reveals the unspoken evidence of how racism has been killing youths across India- and offers resolutions on how it can be dealt with.

She is also into spoken word poetry and often uses poetry as a tool for her activism, to raise awareness about the issues in her society and of the country.
