Tell us a little about yourself.
I am a passionate believer in the combination between art and activism and have been curious in ways to bridge the divide to a more equitable society. I curate and am the editor for Esthesia Magazine, an online magazine aimed at the creatives present in the India today. I love reading, listening to Frank Ocean and learning various aspects of law. I am also an avid advocate of inclusive veganism that suits each of our bodies and cultural backgrounds.
Tell us about what you do at One Future Collective?
I am an Editorial Intern at OFC’s The Thought Project.
Why One Future Collective?
OFC is brilliantly aware of about being actively inclusive and also in providing mental boundaries one might need to flourish while not hampering their sense of self. From gender to being youth driven, our work culture is extremely rejuvenating.
Your favourite One Future Collective memory.
I loved being in a room where models of how to go about creating a feminist legal aid centre was being created and discussed!
What inspires you?
I am inspired by many things: articles dissecting cinema, climate change activism, and our lord and saviour Lizzo changing the landscape of body positivity.
