Hannah is a singer and instrumentalist playing keyboard, guitar and ukulele and is also a freestyle, Bollywood and Kathak dancer. "Being a musician and a member of a musical band, I can very well empathise with fellow performers who perform despite being in pain. I realised that I want to work with performers at a very early stage while studying physiotherapy. I strongly believe in the biopsychosocial framework of management while dealing with any patient, especially performers".
