Peraly Meyer was born in Komla Thabi village of Chandel district, Manipur. She grew up in a destitute family where she had to take turns with her siblings to get formal education. Even though she started in such conditions, Peraly never gave up her education and kept focusing on building herself an honorary career. She is now working as a surgical assistant in Denton Regional Medical Centre, Texas, USA. Since the age of 12, Peraly was always passionate about helping the sick and she was always eager to help whenever her family and relatives got sick and admitted to hospitals.

Born and raised in the violence-torn landscape of Manipur, I have a vision to promote and spread inspiring, empowering, educative & entertaining stories. I believe that we can create contents bringing the positive side of Manipur. I believe we can do this together by finding the voices, voices which needs to be heard and shared, voices of our own people, people of Manipur and well-wishers of Manipur. I believe that these voices will bring a change and connect all of us.
