Ritu is wife and mum to brave EB warriors and based in Singapore. She joined DEBRA International in 2016, a year after founding DEBRA Singapore. Her firm commitment to making a difference to under-served EB patients in South and South-East Asia drives her service as an EB Without Borders Ambassador. Ritu also serves on boards of various rare disease organisations like APARDO, RDI, and IRDiRC.

In her other life, Ritu is a sociolinguist and works as a full-time faculty at the Nanyang Technological University where she teaches graduate and undergraduate courses. She is equally passionate about her research on the impact of Language Policies on immigrant minorities in multilingual sites and publishes on the topic. In her 'spare time', Ritu loves to run and still dreams of completing a full marathon one day!
