Meet the doctor and strategy consultant working to improve student wellbeing.

By Natalie Cornish

Born in India, raised in New Zealand and now living in Sydney, junior doctor Ashna Basu has made mental and sexual health her focus since graduating from UNSW. Now, she’s half-way through a transformative year off clinical medicine to reflect, re-group and pursue other projects. Here, Dr. Basu talks the importance of taking a break, the three inspiring female powerhouses in her life, the book that’s changed the way she practices and why self-care means so much more than face masks.

“Who doesn’t love a sisterhood? As soon as I learnt about Future Women, I wanted to be a part of this community of amazing women. I love a cross-industry collaboration, and was excited by the chance to meet women from different industries.

You’ve hit the glass ceiling. And our paywall.

Help us smash it by becoming a Future Woman for as little as $4 a month.
