She has a varied professional background that allows her to have a broad perspective on her present work.

Born into a family of entrepreneurs, Me Roy initially trained in arts, including theatre, film, and visual arts. Driven by a desire to understand the inner mechanism of the society in which we collectively evolve, she undertook studies in law.
