Scleroderma Stories Issue 5
Please introduce yourself
My name is Yogita Sharma. I’m from Haridwar, India, and I’m living in Delhi right now. I’m currently working as an Associate Consultant in Ernst and Young in the Healthcare Sector.
I’ve been diagnosed with systemic sclerosis since 2016. I live with my family: three siblings and my parents, two of my elder sisters are married.
I like reading books – novels mostly. I’m pretty much a bookworm. I can read books anywhere! If I get time during work or on the commute back home, I just read books. I also enjoy puzzles like Sudoku and listening to music. And by far my favorite pastime is sleeping. That’s all I have time for these days.
